My poor young okra plants appear to be dying. I think it might be fusarium wilt, but this is the first time I've grown okra. I live in central Alabama and we've recently had some very heavy rain. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Thank you in advance!
This looks more like the plant is staying too wet than it does a wilt. But to be on the safe side spray the plants, both sides of the leaves, with 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide to 2 parts water once a week. Okra is a tough plant and will probably be ok.
There are many fungi that are not even close to as harmful as fusarium and and verticillium wilt. With these two there isn't much one can do but with the other bacterial and fungal diseases hydrogen peroxide works pretty well. So just in case it isn't a water issue don't forget to spray the peroxide.
