Chemical control of root rot (Pythium spp.) in bulb cultivation by soil disinfection

Chemical control of root rot (Pythium spp.) in bulb cultivation by soil disinfection

Mededelingen van de Faculteit Landbouwwetenschappen, Rijksuniversiteit Gent 44(2): 537-543

In a field trial on sandy soil injection of the new compound AA 10472 (dichloropropene + etridiazole) gave excellent control of root rot on irises, good control on hyacinths but poor control on crocuses compared with prothiocarb. In glasshouse trials, complete control of root rot in forced tulips was given by furalaxyl at the lowest rate (0.5 g/m2) on sandy soil and at 1 g/m2 on clay and peat soils. When used at 8 g/m2 before the first planting, there was no infection in the second planting.
