Newsletter No. 16– August 4, 2017

Thank you to the staff and participants for making the Lelah Starks Foundation Seed Farm Field Day an outstanding event.  Despite the unseasonable cool temperatures, attendance was excellent with great discussion.

In the UWEX Vegetable Crop Updates newsletter this week, please find info on P-Day and DSV accumulations, national and WI late blight updates and cucurbit downy mildew updates.

Late blight was confirmed from a second WI county earlier this week – Pierce County – along our west side.  The case was on commercial tomato. Please see recommendations for prevention in this newsletter.
