Hi all, with the threat of cucurbit downy mildew coming this way I thought to ask the listserv what you may have learned in previous years from attempts to prevent DM infection in cucurbits when disease pressure was early. It would be helpful to hear any attempts that were not effective at controlling the disease, in addition to any practices that did seem to allow cucurbits to mature when DM was present. If you have any thoughts about how previous experience informs your management approach for this year, that would be insightful to read too.
I'll repost any responses by Saturday evening, thanks in advance!
