This report confirms previous research showing that such wet-warm-weather diseases as halo blight, anthracnose, black rot, downy mildew, leaf spot, early blight, bacterial spot, and other similar diseases, will disappear from warm-season, sprinkler-irrigated crops in California's coastal and interior valleys when the water is applied by furrow irrigation.
