Controlling 'Bacterial Leaf Spot' with Pepper plants
I've had bad problems with bacterial leaf spot with pepper plants, the last two years. Very bad this year, a wet spring couldn't help. Cubanelle, has done the best, Italian type peppers were badly affected but have recovered strong enough to produce well, except for Ancient Sweets which has few leaves left. The Bell types they have been pathetic and a total waste of space, many plants the few peppers were small and rotted on the plants.
Other than trying to rotate, what should I do to control the problem? How much of the problem could start with the plants I buy (do not grow from seed)? Pull out the plants early? Should I not plant any pepper plants next year? How do I avoid a chronic problem?
