Often on plants you can observe a strange whiteraid. And it does not matter, rooms are flowers, garden or garden. The presence of whitish powder on the leaves indicates the defeat of their powdery mildew. Behind such a sweet name lies a very persistent and enduring fungus. He winters in the remains of plants and with the onset of heat begins to settle your planting. Suffer from it cucumbers, roses, berry bushes, cereals and ornamental flowers.
How to deal with powdery mildew? First of all, prevention. In time, remove the obsolete parts of the plant. Old twigs and leaves ruthlessly destroy. Soil under the plant periodically loosen. Do not plant the plants too close to each other.
Differences in night and daytime temperatures (especiallystrong vibrations) exhaust the plants, and adversely affect their ability to effectively resist the fungus. For the same reason, we never water garden crops (in particular, cucumbers) with cold water. Otherwise, soon they will show off powdery mildew. Measures to combat it include the introduction of potash fertilizers and superphosphate. It is noticed that urea and overgrown cow dung, on the contrary, give a green light to the development of the disease. To prevent infection, spray the planting with "Quadrice".
If the leaves are only powdery mildew,treatment begins by treating all parts of the plant with sulfur. Finely ground powder is placed in a pouch of gauze, from which it is then sown to the "patients". Pollination should be made in windless weather, and then from one gust of wind all your work will go to waste.
Appearing powdery mildew, the treatment of whichfolk remedies includes other recipes, afraid of ordinary potassium permanganate. But, so that the leaves are not burned, the drug is diluted in a weak proportion: a ten-liter bucket of water takes about one and a half grams of potassium permanganate. We spray the plants with the solution.
There is a more rare way of fighting for healthgreen wards. This is the treatment of leaves with milk whey. It is diluted with water and then applied to plants. As a result, they form a film that does not reproduce the fungus. Thus, the development of such a disease as powdery mildew will be stopped. Treatment does not stop there. The best results are provided by an integrated approach.
Therefore, we should not neglect specialmeans produced by industry. Fungicides, which are designed for the prevention and destruction of fungal lesions, are highly effective.
At the first signs of the disease, regular treatment with Topaz or Tivit Jet is necessary.
If your plants are already firmly establishedpowdery mildew settled on leaves, treatment is carried out with the help of "Tilt", "Lepidocide", "Skor". Do not be lazy, carefully spray every leaf, not ignoring the inner part of it! It is useful to further process the soil.
Remove the severely affected parts of the plant. Do not allow the fungus to spread to a healthy fit.
Do not lower your hands, timely measures will save your green pets from the scourge.
