Q.I Live In Missouri. I Have An Issue With Non Producing Zucchini

Zone 65202 | dlbrennan19 added on August 1, 2020 | Answered

I have two plants in a 4×8 raised bed. They receive 5 hours of direct sun with 2 additional hours of filtered sun. Both plants produce blooms. Some of those just drop off while others will start to fruit but those have all turned to mush. I don’t see any pests. Any ideas?

A foliar spray will be the quickest solution. Using Dolomitic lime in the soil will help, long term, though. Using both can help now, and stave off future problems.

Here are some articles that will help:
