Okra leaves getting powdery mildew and leaf miner?

Okra    None Given

I have about 5 okra plants and all of them have this problem. I live in Bangalore, India. What is the best organic solution for this?

An organic solution would be to cut any leaves that are heavily infested and bag them up and throw away with trash..also wash the leaves with the water hose to remove insects..do more then once to knock the insects off that even crawl back up. Some people like doing "soap sprays" or "garlic sprays" as well.

>1 part soap or garlic and 4 parts water. .

As far as mildew goes make sure your plants have enough space between them (air flow isnt sufficient), morning waterings vs. night time..night waters invite spores..also make sure they get plenty of sun..
Hope this helps your idea. :)
