White powder on peas

Zone Sheboygan, WI 5b | Holimo added on August 22, 2016 | Answered

We're growing peas and there's a white powder like stuff that slowly takes over the plants. New growth will be green then develops white stuff. Leaves and pods will turn yellow. The peas inside often look fine. What is it and what can I do? Thank you.

Your peas are probably being attacked by powdery mildew, a common garden fungus. See these articles:
