Field Evaluation of Potential New Fungicides for Control of Powdery Mildew of Cantaloupe in 1994
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractPowdery mildew of cantaloupe in Arizona is caused by the plant pathogenic fungus Sphaerotheca fuliginea. The disease is found in melon fields each year; however, the incidence and severity of the disease is quite variable. Disease development is favored by low relative humidity, moderate temperatures, and succulent plant growth. Potential new fungicides were evaluated for disease control in a field trial conducted in the spring of 1994. In this study, Rally and Reach provided the highest level of disease control and highest percentages of marketable fruit when compared to untreated cantaloupe plants.
