Cucurbit Downy Mildew Update
Updates provided by Amanda J. Gevens, Associate Professor & Extension Vegetable Plant Pathologist, Interim Co-Director of Wisconsin Seed Potato Certification Program, UW-Madison, Dept. of Plant Pathology
Dr. Brian Hudelson of our Plant Disease Diagnostic Lab confirmed downy mildew on cucumber yesterday from Vernon County WI. This is WI’s first find, as far as I am aware. Protection of cucurbits, especially cucumber at this time, is recommended. I have provided treatments in previous Vegetable Crop Update Newsletters.
