Hop diseases can be difficult to diagnose and management requires a custom approach to each disease (Fig. 2). Michigan has a very different production climate than the majority of the nation’s current hop production. Consequently, much of the extension and research material is not tailored to Michigan growers. DM is one of the most important diseases of hop in wet, humid production regions like Michigan. Many products are capable of controlling DM on a 10-day spray schedule (e.g. mandipropamid and flucopicolide), however, very little is known about combinations of these products to build an effective spray program for resistance management.
