August 2012, Week 5 Update

Over the past two weeks temperatures in the Northeast have dropped rapidly.  As a consequence, most folks are seeing good recovery from summer stress.  Cooler nights have made a huge difference.  It has also been extremely dry the past two weeks and this has kept most of the disease at bay.  Unfortunately, I am  seeing both gray leaf spot and standard Drechslera leaf spot pop up, despite the drier conditions.  Nematode counts are as high as they have been all season, I expect the peak populations to occur in the next 2-3 weeks.
