Control of Pythium wet rot of cowpea (Vigna sinensis) in Nigeria

, : Control of Pythium wet rot of cowpea (Vigna sinensis) in Nigeria. Indian Phytopathology 1987; 39(2): 245-248

Growth of P. aphanidermatum in culture was inhibited best by Brestan thiotox, fernasan and captan. In field assessments, fentin acetate, captan, Du-ter fernasan and thiotox gave better control of the disease when used as a seed dressing than as a soil drench. Infection was reduced by spraying cowpea plants at 2-week intervals with 1000 p.p.m. fentin acetate and thiotox.
