Gummy Stem Blight on Watermelon and Muskmelon
Clemson Extension Program Team
Gummy stem blight is one of the most common foliar diseases on watermelon, muskmelon, honeydew, and other specialty melons in the southeastern United States. How severe the disease becomes depends on rainfall and dew periods. Growers and Extension agents should focus management and education efforts on crop rotation and careful fungicide selection to effectively manage this disease.
