Disease Forecasting

Welcome to the weather-based disease-forecasting page from University of Maryland Extension. It contains information on how to schedule fungicide applications for watermelon, muskmelon and tomato crops. If you are using one of these models for the first time, you may want to apply it on a limited area to become comfortable with the model. As always, be sure to scout your field regularly, and if a disease outbreak occurs, revert to a calendar spray.  Watermelon EFICantalope EFIPocessing Tomato DSVDISEASE ALERTS!Slides of Diseased Plants
