I have not personally observed this yet, but county agents and producers are now starting to observe limited downy mildew.  Though it has been drier of late, dew is sufficient for infection, and we have had some rains over the last few weeks that may have initiated infections.  Scout carefully for mildew, and if observed, consider application of the more efficacious fungicides such as Ridomil Gold MZ and others going forward. This is just a heads up for all, and there is no need to panic — yet.
