Crop Rot Impacts Local Farms

The disease is called Phytophthera Capsici It is somewhat similar to a blight that attacked  local tomato and potato crops two years ago. Whereas that rot was caused by an airborne disease, Phytophthera Capsici  is water-borne and targets other crops.

“It affects vine crops like pumpkins and summer squash and cucumbers…it can affect peppers.”
