Watch for fungal diseases Summer and early autumn are peak seasons for fungal dis- eases, especially if humidity levels are high and showers are frequent. Most fungal diseases are very host specific (a certain disease only affects a particular type of plant) and all are spread by means of tiny, dust-like particles called spores. Here are some of the most prevalent to look out for: Powdery mildew, pictured. The name refers to the powder-like coating that devel- ops on the leaves and stems. Powdery mildew is a particu- lar problem with cucurbits, the members of the cucumber/pump- kin family, but can attack a wide range of other plants, including roses. Control mildew on vegies with Yates Natures Way Fungus Spray. Use the convenient Fungus Gun on ornamentals. Soft, sappy growth is the most likely to be attacked by mildew, so cut back on heavy watering and reduce applications of nitrogen-rich fertilisers. Instead, choose a fertiliser that s high in potassium, because potassium is the nutri- ent that builds up resistance to disease. Thrive Flower & Fruit, for example, not only promotes blooming but gives the plant a good dose of potash. Rust. The fungal disease rust has nothing to do with the breakdown of old iron, but is named for the rust-like pustules that develop on the leaves. Certain plants are more sus- ceptible to rust problems than others. Yates Bravo Fungicide provides excellent control of rust. Black spot. Black spot is best known as the number one spoiler of rose leaves, but vari- ous versions of black spot attack other plants. A severe case of rose black spot will cause leaf drop and subsequent weakening of the plant. Use Rose Gun or Rose Super Shield. Damping off. Damping off is a disease caused by a soil-borne fungus and affects germinating seeds and young seedlings. It can be identified by watery rot in the taproot at the soil line and the yellowing of leaves. Damp- ing off usually occurs under moist still-air conditions and overwatering. Yates Copper Oxychloride can help protect young seedlings, but reducing watering and exposing the seedlings to more air and light are the most important controls. Controlling fungal diseases Prevention of fungal diseases is better than cure, so try to avoid the conditions that promote dis- ease. Water plants in the morn- ing, rather than the evening, so that the leaves stay as dry as possible. Have suitable plant fungicides on hand to combat disease as soon as it appears. Other fungicides, such as Natures Way Fungus Spray and Lime Sulphur, are better regarded as protectants that stop diseases from spread- ing.
