    This is our 4th year of procuring Desi Ivy Gourd Shoot (Pencil Donda Sapling) from our farmers and are very proud that many members had a pleasant growing experience, albeit battling pests/diseases that affect it during and after flowering stage. Subsequently, we had addressed many problems affecting Ivy Gourd/Donda through our Plant Doctor service, where our expert suggestions are shared with concerned members on WhatsApp.

    Most Common Pests/Diseases Affecting Ivy Gourd/Donda are:

    1. Powdery Mildew
      We all hate this fungus, don’t we? It affects most of our Gourds and flowering plants, with the fungus spores feeding on top of the leaves giving a ‘powdery’ texture. Powdery Mildew spreads quickly with the change of season and morning dew.

      How To Control Powdery Mildew in Natural Farming?

      – Tending to your plants regularly is key. We strongly advise all members to be on constant lookout especially during change of season.
      – Mix 1tbsp Baking Soda in 1ltr water and spray on all your plants affected with Mildew. After 3-4 days, mix 1 cup of Raw Milk in 6 cups of water and repeat the same.
      – Regular dusting with Cowdung Ash helps deter spreading of fungal spores.
      – Accumulation of dust on leaves exasperates your plant’s vulnerabilities further. It is a best practice to water off dust.

    2. Aphids
