Leaf spot on swiss chard

Posted by gaetanol z6NY (My Page) on

I have what I believe is a case of leaf spot on my swiss chard. Anything I can do to prevent it from spreading to new leaves? Anyone tried any successful organic methods to control it?

Thanks in advance

RE: Leaf spot on swiss chard

There are, apparently, a couple of fungi that cause leaf spot on Swiss Chard, neither of which I have seen here, yet. A couple of common sprays for fungi are 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 quart of water, or a 50/50 mixture of fat free milk and water, sprayed every 5 to 7 days. How effective these would be for this I can't say.
