My zucchini plants are producing just fine. The leaves, however, are all turning light green then drying up to brown dead leaves. All the while new dark healthy looking leaves keep growing. I have a generous layer of straw laid down as mulch. I have heard that using only straw can throw off the carbon/nitrogen ratio. Is this my problem or is it something else I dont know about...Please help me!

It's not your mulch, buddy. It's more likely a bacterial wilt. I'd pull up the plants and start again in a different spot.

Thanks for the tip, Ive come to suspect that the problem is 'whitefly' any suggestions?

I had the same problem with my zucchini this year. I also had tons of flowers growing and got no fruit.
