This bacterial disease can occur in the plant bed or field. It most commonly occurs in the field in mid-summer during periods of cloudy, wet weather. Leaf spots develop, which are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter and dark brown to black in color. They are limited by leaf veins making spots angular in shape. Concentric rings may be evident within the spots. Spots may coalesce, forming large irregular dead areas. The center of the spots may fall out, giving the leaf a ragged appearance. Leaves will turn yellow when numerous spots are present. Angular leafspot is most severe on lower leaves.
