‚ÄčDowny mildew was observed on pumpkins in a commercial field in Shelby County and in research plots at Brewton and Tallassee this week.  The moisture we have seen in some parts of the state has favored the development of the disease.  We did see downy mildew on cucumber in our downy mildew monitoring plots in late June and early July, so disease inoculum was already present in the state.  Please refer to this publication in regards to fungicide recommendations and cultural practices to follow to try to manage this disease.  The publication was developed by Dr. Tony Keinath, Extension Plant Pathologist. at Clemson University.
