Announcements

Downy Mildew Confirmed in Western New York

As expected from the prediction of hot weather and westerly winds, downy mildew (DM) has reached WNY with a confirmed case reported in Niagara County. For those with late cucumbers, it is time to step up the spray program to keep DM from really taking hold. Refer to the Cornell Vegetable Guidelines for a complete list of products available. Rotating fungicides is essential to reduce chances of resistance. Forceful sprays are needed to reach the undersides of leaves. For more information, contact Robert Hadad.
