Peaches may be grown in many temperate areas of the United States. The startup costs for peaches can be high depending on the production method chosen, land preparation, and initial investment in the trees. However, the life of the orchard is expected to be at least 20 years, so this investment may be spread over a longer period of time than many crops.
Symptoms of the disease can be mistaken by nutritional problems since they manifest as a yellowing or browning of leaves. However, if the abaxial side of the leaf is inspected, profuse, dark sporulation will be covering the surface of infected leaves. Usually, the sporulation is obvious enough that it can be seen without a microscope or hand lens, however, when you take a closer look at the sporulation on the leaf with a hand lens or dissecting microscope, you will be able to see the typical sporangiophore structures bearing sporangia found in downy mildew pathogens
This book is an effort to present practical, sound, research-based ideas hopefully leading to the improved management of human resources on the farm.

This graphic will guide growers as they prune blackberry or raspberry plants. It’s a simple, four-step diagram that is easy to follow and reinforces the instructions with images. Growers might consider printing this PDF and posting in appropriate areas of the operation for reference while pruning the plants.
