Dear all,
I have recently started gardening, using the sq ft gardening method. My soiless mix is composed of equal portions of compost, vermiculite, and coco peat. My cucumber plants have grown up to 5' tall, and has many yellow flowers. It was looking healthy till last week, until the bottom most leaves have started to wither and have gotten brown. In a matter of few days, half the plant is now brown.
Please give me your advise and suggestions, as what I can do at such a situation. Why the same should happen? I don't want to loose my plants. Thanks. Archana

it could be a fungal disease. it could be caused by careless watering/overcrowding or caused by a fungus in the soil.

 

preventive measures:

 

1. 100 grams of neem cake/manure should be applied in the top layer of ur soil( 1 foot length X 1foot breadth and 1 foot depth) and mixed before sowing/transplanting.

 

2. only 2 vines  should be retained in  pit (1 foot length X 1foot breadth and 1 foot depth).

 

3. the same place shouldnt be used to grow gourds again in the next cycle./follow crop rotation.

    1. leaves crop(spinach/cabbage/kholrabi....)

    2. fruit crop( cucumbers,tomatoes,egg plants,melon,pepper......)

    3. root crop

    4.soil building and cleaning crop(beans,lab lab,corns, peas...)

Dear kumari,

Thank you so much.
The vine is almost gone now. But still I will try what you told me.
I think it's careless watering. I pour water all over the leaves, and I'll stop that right away.
