Possible solutions for controlling wilt on Veges and fruit from Rodale's basic organic gardening.
Mix 1 part cows milk with 9 part water and spray plants.
And
Mix 1. Tsp baking soda with 1 Qt water and spray. It says that raises PH and slows down powdery mildew.
It didn't say but I'd guess you would saturate the ground with the baking soda

I see no point in experimenting.  The Sevin is doing it here just fine,  Gonna need a drink soon though (possibly tonight).  getting a might dry.

Pretty hard to buy unpasturized milk.  Guess I could hit up Wadsworth for a jug from a tanker.

Not sure what they meant by cows milk. 
I doubt 1 or 2% would do the job.

I'll keep putting Sevin on. If I see that's not 100% effective I'll add the baking soda
