Common Kale Problems

Pest and Disease Control:

Same as for cabbage. Spraying with Sevin or dusting with rotenone organic pesticide helps to control flea beetles. Organic controls such as Dipel or Thuricide will reduce damage from cabbage worms. Planting through black plastic normally prevents entrance of root maggots into the soil. Kale shows some natural tolerance to attack from root maggots.
