Anyone tried this? Will it harm foilage/blooms?
Cowpeas in my garden have never needed an insecticide. Is something attacking yours?
I doubt neem oil, used according to recommendations, would harm foliage or blooms. But I haven't used it.
Not sure but it looks like smut on the stems and under leaves.Very tiny blackish gray bugs.They are real thick.I have 4 rows of PEPH.Applied half strength to 1 row this a.m.Will evaluate tommorrow.Always have something attacking.If its not bugs its disease.Trying to stay chemical free as much as possible.Stink bugs will be a problem soon.They will appear as soon as peas start developing.
Just in from work. Checked row with half strength, no ill effects.Mixed up full strength and applied to 4 rows of blooming peas.Also applied to 2" seedlings.Fingers crossed that this works.Our peas always have bugs.Have been using chemicals that work but don't trust.Trying to be chemical free.This is a real test for green thumb!! ROLL TIDE!!!!
