Yellow Zucchini Leaves - Knowledgebase Question

Question by sheaosulliva

Some of my zucchini plants have leaves that are yellowing and eventually dying. They tend to be the leaves underneath and closest to the ground. Should I be trimming these leaves off, or letting them die and disintegrate on their own?

I would remove the sickly looking leaves to prevent any fungal diseases from attacking the leaves and then spreading to the healthy plant parts.

Good luck with your zucchini!
