With the recent cool and rainy weather, all High Country growers should be scouting and taking steps to prevent disease on all crops. To add to the urgency, Cucurbit Downy Mildew has been found recently in several nearby locations, Grape Downy Mildew has been observed in Georgia, and Tomato/Potato Late Blight confirmed in Maryland. Clearly, airborne plant pathogens are ‘on the march’ a little earlier than usual, and conditions on the ground favor crop disease development here. See the following  updates for more information on the movement of these diseases:
