Downy mildew, caused by Pseudoperonospora cubensis, is the most important disease of cucumber production in humid areas and greenhouses in Iran. The yield loss of cucumber due to downy mildew may reach to 100%. Because the chemical control is the main method of disease control, especially in susceptible cultivars, establishing a forecasting program which is based on estimation of pathogen population, recording the temperature and relative humidity of field and greenhouse, can reduce the risk of disease epidemic. So by proper application of a protective or systemic fungicide can reduce the disease incidence, production costs and the most important, the amount of fungicide residue.
