Video: Organic management of downy mildew in cucurbits

A new video, Managing Cucurbit Downy Mildew on Organic Farms, has been posted on the eXtension website. The 11-minute video discusses strategies that organic growers can use if they face downy mildew problems, such as selecting resistant cultivars, using OMRI-listed pesticides, choosing specific high tunnel designs (such as movable tunnels), and rotating crops.
