What’s attacking my squash plants?
I have planted a large patch of Red Kuri squash plants that are having problems with what I think is stem/ crown rot disease. It looks set to destroy about half my crop this season. My plants appeared to be healthy a week ago, then I noticed some plants with leaf wilt, and then they just die a day later. On inspection I cannot find any evidence of insects or vine borer, hence I think it might be fungal.
What product would you recommend to protect the remaining healthy squash plants? I have sprayed bicarb soda around the base of the plant but think I may need to call in the big guns on this one!
