Powdery mildew

Anyone else having problems with powdery mildew on their cucumber plants? The leaves started turning white on top like some dirty water was poured on them, then they crack and curl. I looked it up this morning and used a fungicide that is indicated for the disease. Hope I caught it in time.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Powdery mildew

Strawberries had it this year, but so far no problems with the cucs. I'm trying Serenade this year as a fungicide (preventative) and so far no issues. I'd think you'd be ok catching it now...it clears up relatively quickly.

Re: Powdery mildew

In the past, I've had luck with a 10 to 1 water to milk mix. I spray all my vining plants and zuchini with it every few days.
