grey sand-like particles on kale plants

All my brassicas were infected. All over the leaves, especially at the crown, were grey particles th e size of sand. The plants stank awfully

I cannot find any disease listed that cause these.
Can someone help?

Did you take pictures? Could you be talking about cabbage aphids?
