As many other parts of VA, we have been experiencing thunderstorms running through our area in the past week for so. Yesterday, we had about 9 hours of wetness with an average temperature of low 70's, then followed by a very humid night with an average temperature of mid-60's. These conditions are conducive for downy mildew development. Please check the previous posting for more information on downy mildew management. Also, as veraison approaches near (or happening for some cultivars), please check 12 July posting on late season disease management.
