Re: Leaf Spot--aphids--foliar feeding

At a JT yesterday George Sutton presented an interesting theory. 
He has noticed much less leaf spot the last couple of years 
(in central California), starting when he began foliar feeding. 
He also sees fewer aphids.

The theory is that foliar feeding helps to control the aphids, 
and aphids spread leaf spot.

Any comments?

BTW, the Judges Training was on Space Agers and Rebloomers, 
and some of the slides he showed of rebloomers were awesome. 
Opinions were mixed on how well the two combine in a single 
JT, but I certainly found it useful.
