Watermelon downy mildew was found in two South Carolina counties this week.
Certain diseases become a factor if pumpkins are growing in fields with increased moisture.
Symptoms typical of CDM include angular, chlorotic or yellow lesions on the upper surface of the leaves with gray to black spores on the underside of the leaf.
Downy mildew on cucumber has been verified in Berrien County, which is located in southwest Michigan.
Our molecular analysis of the spore trap samples from Berrien County has recently confirmed cucumber downy mildew spores in the air for June 8, 10 and 13, 2020. For the Muskegon spore trap, there was a positive for cucumber downy mildew spores for June 8.
