Issues with Turnips

greenbrier517(8)October 30, 2011

I have planted Turnips every fall for several years now with good success. This year though, problems have arose. I first noticed small spots on the foliage becoming dead and brownish in color. Now it seems to have taken over my entire crop. What can this be? Here's a link to a picture of these damaged greens.

I was not able to find any bugs present. I figured I'd come here for some expert advice.

Thanks to you all.

Did you water or apply any kind of wet fertilizer when it was really hot out? It looks burned.

I have not added any fertilizer in over a year now. Could it be that the hot temperatures it was exposed to a month ago have affected it? Thanks for your answer.

My guess is heat, it really looks like sunburn!
