Anthracnose (Cucurbits)

Tomato Pine Nut Soup - Heirloom Tomato




Attacks most cucurbits in warm, wet weather. Infected

fruit develops circular brown to black sunken areas,

up to 1″ across. Overwintering occurs in plant refuse

and on seed. Cucumber beetles and splashing water spread


Solution: For best

control, begin spraying with Soap-Shield® Fungicidal Soap

before the disease normally appears (when warm, humid

weather is the normal weather pattern). Repeat application

at 7-10 day intervals, more frequently if the amount

of disease is increasing rapidly. Use PyolaTM Insecticidal

Spray or Super-Light Insect Barrier to control

cucumber beetles.
