With May’s weather continuing to be up and down, humidity control is a problem in the greenhouse, meaning Powdery Mildew (PM) is too. This pest is rearing it’s ugly head in crops like Kalanchoe and Dahlia.
We won’t cover the basics of PM here: biology, spread and prevention were covered in a previous post. Instead, we’ll focus on monitoring, and which control products to use once you’ve found an infection.
