Real-world watermelon experiences through the eyes of Florida Extension agents.

Developed by UF/IFAS Extension county and regional agents in the Suwannee Valley Agricultural Area with support from the Florida Watermelon Associated (FWA), the Watermelon Field Guide is a handy visual reference that growers can take to the field to identify the pests, diseases, injuries, disorders and other challenges to growing watermelon in Florida.

Fully illustrated with 140 color photos, this guide provides real-life observations on a wide range of subjects, including:
  • Chemical Injuries (herbicides, miticides, chemical burns)
  • Diseases (fungal pathogens, viruses, bacterial diseases)
  • Environmental Injuries (hail, lightning, irrigation problems)
  • Nutrients (testing, deficiencies, toxicities)
  • Good Bugs and Bad Bugs (beneficial insects, squash bugs, whiteflies, nematodes)
  • Physiological and Genetic Disorders (leaf curling, hollow heart, oedema)
  • Wildlife (raccoons, birds, feral pigs)
  • And more!
