Do not overfertilize with nitrogen as this stimulates higher mite populations.
Scout for presence of TSSM by randomly sampling 60 leaves from whole field.
Treat field with miticide or release mite predators if TSSM are found on more than 25% of leaves sampled.
Consult your Extension Specialist for help identifying mite predators and/or finding a source of predators for release.
Good spray coverage, especially on the underside of leaves is important for successful control. Use adequate gallonage and sufficient pressure to achieve good spray coverage.
Repeat applications may be needed for successful control.
Apply Portal in a minimum of 25 gals. of water per acre.
Savey and Zeal are effective on eggs and immatures and not adults so are best used when infestation levels are low.
Apply Nealta at first sign of mites, before population increases.
Use Captiva to repell or suppress mites.

Plant beds in such a way as to maximize the air circulation and drying of foliage. Avoid excess nitrogen fertilization.

Some cultivars are more susceptible to powdery mildew than others. See Table 22 for susceptibility rating.
Cultivars vary in their susceptibility to powdery mildew.
Captan has a 0 day phi, but the REI of 24 hrs requires that PPE be worn during this period.
Apply Torino in a minimum of 20 gals. of water per acre.
Begin application of Serenade for suppresion of powdery mildew at or before flowering and repeat every 7-10 days or as needed through harvest. For improved performance, use in a tank mix or rotational program with other registered fungicides for powdery mildew control. 
Begin application of Kaligreen at first sign of  disease.
Both Badge SC and XE require 48 hr REI. 
CEASE is labelled for greenhouse/hightunnel production only. Requires 4 REI.
MilStop can be used preventatively and as a curative in early disease development.

Remove or thoroughly incorporate leaf debris from field at renovation. This helps disrupt the disease cycle of these fungi.
Avoid excess nitrogen application that promotes dense foliage and poor air circulation.
Blossom protection is the most important component of successful Botrytis control. An early bloom application should be made at 10% bloom and followed up at mid and late bloom if field conditions are wet.
Captan has a 0 day phi, but the REI of 24 hrs requires that PPE be worn during this period.
Be careful about phytotoxicity when using JMS Stylet Oil in proximity to some other materials, especially Captan. Read label carefully before use.
Begin application of Serenade at or before flowering and repeat every 7-10 days or as needed through harvest. For improved performance, use in a tank mix or rotational program with other registered fungicide for Botrytis control.

Avoid excessive overhead irrigation; allow drying time between wetting periods when possible.
Avoid excess nitrogen application that promotes dense foliage and poor air circulation.
Avoid work in fields when wet.
Apply Kocide in at least 20 gallons water. Use higher rates when conditions favor disease. Discontinue use if signs of crop injury appear.
Spray Oxidate when conditions first appear.  Use caution when tank mixing Oxidate with other materials; conduct a compatability test for any combinations.
Both Badge formulations require 48 hr REI. 
CEASE is labelled for greenhouse/hightunnel production only. Has4 hr REI.

Keep field free of over-ripe fruit to the extent possible. Prompt renovation can reduce migration into neighboring fields.
Bait baskets with overripe fruit or balls of bread dough at intervals around edges of field to catch beetles as they migrate into the field.

Do not allow fruit to become over-ripe.
Harvest regularly.

Spray only if weather is wet or very humid during this period to control secondary infections.

If good coverage was made during bloom, further fungicide applications may not be needed.

Pay strict attention to re-entry periods and harvest intervals for materials used.

No fungicides until after renovation
Fungicides are usually not applied at this time for leaf spot diseases. Materials used for Botrytis management should alleviate leaf spot symptoms until after renovation.
Improve air circulation by narrowing row width, increasing distance between rows, and raising beds. This will allow faster drying after rain, irrigation, and dew.
Remove or thoroughly incorporate leaf debris from field at renovation. This helps disrupt the disease cycle of these fungi.
Harvest (within 4 days of harvest through harvest)
Botrytis Gray Mold
 
Same as Spring, Pre-bloom to early-bloom treatments above.
Do not allow fruit to become over-ripe.
Harvest regularly.
If irrigating between harvests, be sure the plants have time to dry prior to nightfall or use drip irrigation to deliver water while keeping foliage dry.
Fungicide applications at this time are for emergency situations. Good coverage at infection periods during bloom should make late season sprays unnecessary.
Be sure to follow label instructions for both REI and PHI restrictions.

Flies emerge in late summer. Monitor with traps baited with apple cider vinegar and/or fermenting yeast. Fine screening  (less than 1 mm) can act as a barrier for small plantings.

Scout fields early for areas of stunted growth. Where found, dig up the roots of a plant and look for grubs. In mid to late summer look every 1- 2 weeks for leaf notching caused by adult feeding. Adult beetles hide in the soil during the day and feed at night.
Plow under old beds as soon as possible to avoid spread of the insect to new beds. Rotate to non-susceptible crop for 3 years.
A high rate (16 oz.) of Brigade or Bifenture is needed to obtain control of adult black vine weevil (best if applied at night).
Apply Platinum as soil drench in fall or early spring for control of larvae; may be applied to new plantings.
Apply nematodes in early- to mid-May or mid- to late-August as a band treatment. Application rates are given for the treated area. Irrigate prior to and following the nematode spray.

Use sufficient water to move the Ridomil Gold into the root zone. There is no preharvest interval for this application. Routine or preventative application of these materials is not recommended.
Apply Phostrol to foliage when weather is wet and cool in late summer or fall; repeat application in spring when growth begins.
