My cucumber plant leaf becoming yellow and not producing cucumbers as compared to other cucumber plants in same garden.

Answer: Hello Mayank,

It does appear that this plant may be lacking nutrient and, perhaps in part as a result; is succumbing to some disease and possible pest attack. Given this end of the season does often see powdery mildew outbreaks in the garden, I would suggest you carefully remove this plant in order to prevent any possible spread of disease to your other plants. If you would like to try and save it, you may try Yates Lime Sulfur, removing and disposing of the most unhealthy and diseased leaves beforehand.

In future, fertilising with Yates Dynamic Lifter Plus Fruit Food should provide complete nutrition for all your fruiting vegies. This, along with proper irrigation, will help to maximise their resilience to pest and disease attack.

All the very best with your cucumbers.

Kind regards,

Matt
