From a detachment of vegetables, tomatoes, lettuce, beets, potatoes, beans, cabbage, onions, as well as cucumbers and radishes, are affected.

If, at high humidity, brown necrosis is covered with gray fluffy spores and mycelium, which are spread by drafts and infect neighboring plant leaves. And since the botrytis fungus is omnivorous, a similar gray rot from some plants can spread to other representatives of the flora.

Of course, it is advisable to avoid getting fertilizer on the leaves in which the nitrogen concentration is higher. A very large amount of nitrogen can cause the cell walls to soften, and similar tissues become susceptible to infections.
More careful handling of the representatives of the handicap of its formation, especially when removing shoots and leaves, reduces the surface of wounds and, thereby, reduces the possibility of rot. Remove damaged areas of leaves and stems with a sharp knife in dry sunny weather. All plant residues are removed without fail, as they can become sources of plant infection.
