Had the same problem last fall. I sprayed for everything I could find to try. It eventually killed several different plots about 1acre total. How can I stop it?

They should start growing better as the weather cools down. I would fertilize them with some nitrogen fertilizer before a rain and that will give them a boost in growth. You could try thinning out the worst looking plants, but that probably is not practical for that big of area. Spraying them with an insecticide that kills caterpillars should help along with the copper fungicide mentioned by WTH.

Yes 3 or 4 years

thinning will help along with the fungicide, maybe depends on how bad it is.

really need to turn that crop over in spring and plant some non-crucifers for a year or two to allow the spores to die.

if the copper doesnt work you might try the following recipe as it might be bacterial or rust.
