Purple hull peas disease problem

Asked September 12, 2016, 5:46 PM EDT

I have something growing on my pea vines. looks like it is covered with little ants. It started on the pod then went to the leaves. When you pull your hand over it, it is a yellow stain in your hand. It is beginning to get on my okra & squash. Do you know what it is and how I can get rid of it?

the link above list alot of problems/disease associated with peas. With out pictures I wont be able to properly identify your problem. It sounds like powdery mildew or rust. These can both be controlled by applying Neem Oil or copper sulfate. If you happen to send pictures please correspond through my email rather than this site.
