Sustainable Disease Management in the Home Garden (fact sheet series)

Home garden production is more likely to be successful when plant diseases are managed proactively. Preventative practices help to minimize pesticide sprays in residential settings and provide a more sustainable approach. The following series of publications cover five common vegetable groups.  Each two-page fact sheet focuses on preventative cultural practices, but also includes management options using conventional and organic fungicides appropriate for various growth stages.

These fact sheets are available online at:

  • Sustainable Disease Management of Cole Crops in the Home Garden (PPFS-VG-23)
  • Sustainable Disease Management of Cucurbit Crops in the Home Garden (PPFS-VG-19)
  • Sustainable Disease Management of Leafy Green Crops in the Home Garden (PPFS-VG-20)
  • Sustainable Disease Management of Legume Vegetable Crops in the Home Garden (PPFS-VG-22)
  • Sustainable Disease Management of Solanaceous Crops in the Home Garden (PPFS-VG-21)
