Zucchini leaves curling downward


My zucchini plant leaves have curled downward with the older leaves almost touching the ground. It is not wilting because the leaves are all in good shape but just curled downwards. It happened in few plants before too but they recovered after a while. Below is the scheme of things I'm following to grow my zucchini plants.

Water 2-3 inches weekly since it's around 40 Celsius during day time.
Use hydrogen peroxide weekly for disinfection
Use NPK 20 20 20 weekly to feed my plants
Using cow manure dressing in grow beds
Weekly fungicide programme using systemic and protectant fungicide mixes.

I have also attached photos for your reference.

    Hi ladybird ,

    I'm trying to upload the images by clicking camera icon but there image isn't uploading for some reason.

    How can I upload images in this thread since the available option isn't working?

    Try resizing or using a different compression level on your images so they are about 1MB in file size.  Easy on a PC or laptop but maybe not on other devices.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
