Phytophthora of Cucurbits

Figure 17. Phytophthora blight beginning to develop in and along a driveway where soil was compacted from tractors and other equipment. Compacted soil does not drain well, thus conditions favoring disease onset (soil saturated with water) are more likely to occur in driveways.
