An evaluation of fungicide sprays for controlling tomato leaf diseases during the rains in the northern states of Nigeria

, : An evaluation of fungicide sprays for controlling tomato leaf diseases during the rains in the northern states of Nigeria. Acta Horticulturae (53): 83-87

In trials at 9 localities Dithane M-45 at 2 kg/ha, Difolatan 80W at 3.4 kg/ha or Perenox at 5.1 kg/ha were all applied at the rate of 1121 litres/ha at 7- or 14-day intervals. All fungicides gave good control of Alternaria solani, Cladosporium fulvum and Septoria lycopersici but Dithane M-45 was the most effective.
