Hi guys,

I am growing some butternut squash plants which bear some fruits already. However, the leaves starting to show signs of disease. Through online reading, I think I got Phytophora (picture 1 & 2), Angular Leaf spot (picture 3) and yet to know (picture 4 - please help identify the disease)

Has someone come across these similar diseases and can you help confirm if my diagnosis is right? The stems of these leaves are perfectly fine and I've allowed to cut the leaves off.

The other question is these diseases will destroy the leaves, am I right to say that their main impact would be on reducing the amount of leaves for photosynthesis and shades only but no direct impact on fruits quality?

Thank you very much for your kind reply! 😅
