Gray Mold (Beans)

Heirloom Tomato Growing Information

Gray Mold


Description: Gray mold is most common when flowering occurs

during a cool period of high humidity. Crowded plants

with a dense canopy of leaves also encourage gray mold.

Infection begins in the flower and spreads to the pod.


Solution: Rows should

be thinned to allow breezes to dry leaves. Avoid overwatering

and overfertilizing with nitrogen. Apply Soap-Shield® Fungicidal Soap

as soon as flower buds can be seen, and continue applications

as long as plants are flowering
