Canteloupe disease control

Zone Accra, Ghana | Anonymous added on July 1, 2018 | Answered

I am a first-timer; facing a number of challenges and having problem identifying the specific disease challenges I am facing. Find pictures attached. I think I read somewhere, where it says one should stop applying fungicides during the fruiting phase; is this true?

Contact fungicides should be the backbone of most cantaloupe and watermelon spray schedules. Two contact fungicides for this purpose have the active ingredient chlorothalonil or mancozeb. They may be used all season-long.
