Warning signs of Albugo seen on the radish plants in my kitchen garden

Small white lesions were noticed on the radish leaves in my kitchen garden. In an attempt to explore the cause, I cut a small portion and teased it gently on a slide. On peeping through a foldscope, I could make out small round conidia in chains. It confirmed an attack of Albugo. I asked the gardener immediately to spray a fungicide to prevent the spread and performed sanitation of the infected plant and the nearby weeds.
