Pest Alert Network: Powdery Mildew Found

Published online: Jul 16, 2007 Sugar Producer Staff
Howard Binford from the Amalgamated Sugar Company is reporting that powdery mildew has been found in a sugarbeet field north of Adrian, Oregon. The Amalgamated Sugar Company Field Representatives are saying that now is the time to plan your treatments for powdery mildew in sugarbeets. While mildew has not yet been found in the Treasure Valley, White Satin Field staff say the modes of action of the mildew chemistries work best if treatments are applied before mildew is found in the field.
