Best time is when rain is not too much BC of diseases. in fact dry season is the best if u can irrigate. during periods of high humidity, routinely spray them with systemic fungicides. use at least 2 different systemic fungicides with different mode of action, tank mixing each with a contact fungicide.

It is also important to note that during the dry season, stubborn pests like whiteflies, spider mites, leafhoppers etc can poise a problem. Using overhead irrigation and insecticides like imidacloprid, methomyl, Tihans, buprofezin etc will help keep them at bay.
