Downy Mildew Alert in Grapes

Georgia’s warm and humid climate is conducive to the development of fungal diseases in all types of crops. We have been fairly dry lately, so have not seen too much disease in the crops until now. But with a return to more humid, and (hopefully) more rainy conditions, the likelihood of crops like grapes developing a fungal disease goes up. In a recent article in Vegetable and Specialty Crop News at, Phil Brannen discusses how to diagnose powdery versus downy mildew and the best treatments for both varieties.
