If ever there was a year for timely applications of fungicides on the Ontario edible bean crop, this year is it. The 2021 growing season is shaping up as an ideal year for white mould development, increasing the importance of at least two timely fungicide passes to protect the crop. In this episode of the Edible Bean School, Meghan Scott, field marketer with Hensall Co-op, walks an edible bean field with a dense canopy looking for signs of white mould and other disease infection. The excellent growth conditions and high humidity of this growing season have been ideal for white mould infection, and Scott says a two-pass system begins with targeting first pin-bean timing. If the level of risk and conditions persist, a second pass is required within about 10 days of the first to continue that protection.
