Also, can I use this to prevent disease instead of spraying ONLY when there's disease?
Garden Tech Daconil Fungicide kills and prevents more than 80 types of plant diseases as long as you are following the instructions on the product label, however, this product is not specifically labeled for jalapenos, so we are unable to advise on it. For more information on this, you may reach out to the manufacturer (GardenTech) directly at 866-945-5033.
You may use a product such as Fertilome Triple Action instead if you would like. This product is labeled for use in Fruits, Herbs, Nuts, Spices, Vegetables, Roses, Flowers & Shrubs and may be used up to the day of harvest. This product acts as a fungicide as well as an insecticide for labeled pests and is OMRI listed.
Per the product label, "Application Instructions: This product is an effective fungicide for the prevention and control of various fungal diseases including Powdery Mildew, Black Spot, Brown Spot, Dollar Spot, Snow Mold, Downy Mildew, Anthracnose, Rust, Leaf Spot, Botrytis, Needle Rust, Scab and Flower, Twig and Tip Blight. As a preventative, apply ferti•lome® Triple Action on a 7 to 14 day schedule until the potential for disease development is no longer present. To control disease already present, apply this product on a 7 day schedule until disease pressure is eliminated. Then continue spraying on a 14 day schedule to prevent the disease from reoccurring. To prevent Rust Leaf Spot diseases, Anthracnose and Scab, begin applications at the first sign of spring budding. To prevent Powdery Mildew, apply in mid-summer or when disease is first detected. For Brown Patch and Dollar Spot, begin spraying at first sign of disease on a 7 to 14 day interval. For Snow Mold, begin spraying on a 14 day interval in the fall before the first snow. Continue applications until disease pressure no longer exists." Please be sure to review the label for more information before making your application.
