Powdery Mildew Remedy

Powdery mildew is caused by the fungus.

Powdery mildew causes a grey-colored powdery growth to appear on both the upper and lower surface of the plant’s leaves.

The disease appears in the form of whitish patches on both the sides of leaves. These patches gradually grow in size covering a maximum part of the lamina which gives whitish green appearance. When the attack is severe, withering and shedding of leaves take place; patches also appear on shoots near the base which turns black. Affected blossoms fail to set in fruit. Young berries drop when affected in the early stage of their growth. They crack when affected in the advanced stage.

This disease commonly seen in December and January when weather is cool and humid condition.
