I just got the latest ORGANIC GARDENING magazine, something I always
enjoy. I was especially interested in the description of a study
published in CROP PROTECTION by a Brazilian researcher, Wagner Bettiol,
showing that diluted milk (1 part milk with up to 9 parts water) controls
powdery mildew as well as conventional fungicides do.
This sounds a lot better than the soap/alcohol/sodium bicarbanate recipe
a friend gave me, but I'd lay odds that my extension agent would also
declare milk "illegal" because EPA doesn't list milk as a fungicide (I
don't plan to ask him about it--it's not worth the irritation of talking
with him). Thank goodness, I've been able to converse with more
enlightened extension agents here on SANET.
The same ORGANIC GARDENING article talks about diatomaceous earth (DE)
as an alternative to methyl bromide for red & confused flour beetles.
