Farmers are instructed to remove powdery mildew infected plants from the field

Farmers are instructed to take precautionary measures against the spread of powdery mildew and damping-off disease in vegetables. The damping-off disease is more prevalent in young plants of vine vegetables, the small plants begin to wilt and the lower part of the young plants begin to rot from the stalk. To control this disease, growers should apply fungicides such as thiophenate methyl or carbendazim to seeds and crop rotation should be performed. When powdery mildew attacks, yellow spots appear on the leaves. To control this disease, farmers should remove the infected plants from the field and bury them in the ground and Spray Mancozeb or Copper Hydroxide at the rate of 2 to 2.5 grams per liter of water.
