powdery mildew on cucumber plant

Scottsville, KY

how can i treat my cucumber plants for a white powdery mildew.

Standish, MI

Last year I was told to use 1/2 cup dish soap in 1 gallon of water and spray that on your plants and it will remove the powdery mildew.

I did it and it did remove it but unless you get it all it comes back. Needless to say it came back but it did help give us a little longer growing period before the plants died.

Watering at the wrong time of day and getting water on the foliage can cause mildew to start.

As far as I know, one can prevent powdery mildew, but one cannot cure it :(
