Plant healthy, disease-free plants.
Water at the base of plants. Overhead water spreads disease easily.
Water in the morning or midday to minimize the amount of time leaves are wet.
Monitor plants daily to check for pests.
Avoid working on plants when leaves are wet.
Remove and destroy affected plants at the end of the season.
Solarize soil at the end of the season to destroy soil-borne fungi and bacteria.
Rotate crops each year.
