Preventing Powdery Mildew in Cucurbits

Powdery mildew can develop and spread rapidly in cucurbit crops, hurting yield and quality and reducing grower profitability. The disease is first seen on the underside of leaves, then spreads to leaf tops and stems.

Bond McInnes, a fungicide specialist with DuPont Crop Protection based, describes powdery mildew progress and control strategies, including application of DuPont Fontelis® fungicide. Strategic, effective fungicide application helps protect squash marketability.

DuPont Fontelis® fungicide is not available in all states. See your local DuPont sales representative or retailer for details on availability.
