Lon and all;

I have been testing and using a product called Stylet Oil, a food grade
mineral oil to control Powdery Mildew on Gooseberries. It has worked very
well as both a preventitive and also curative. I know that it is used on
grapes and I have heard that it works very well. It is being used at
Cornell and some other places. It has been labeled for PM on many crops and
is available in some places. It is pretty innocuous and does not require
license to use, nor is there a residual problem
