Managing Fungi and Disease can be the Key to Healthy Vegetable Crops

Managing fungi and diseases across vegetable crops is a continuous challenge. Blights, mildews and molds are especially destructive to leaf tissue and crop quality and are common in the Western region.

  • Broccoli, cauliflower and other vegetables are susceptible to downy mildew.
  • Late blight hosts include tomatoes and potatoes and cause lesions on leaves and stems that expand and become darker in color. Spores may be observed on the leaves and stems, as well. Affected fruit remains firm or can decay.
  • Blue mold appears on vegetables like onion and garlic during harvesting. Water-soaked areas appear on the surface and green to blue-green powdery mold is visible. Invasion usually occurs through crop wounds and insect damage.

These fungi and diseases can all be controlled using Revus® fungicide. Revus is an excellent rotation partner for oomycete management. The fungicide provides rainfastness and long-lasting residual control.
