The efficiency of seed treatment with calcium compounds in controlling damping-off disease of certain vegetable crops

, : The efficiency of seed treatment with calcium compounds in controlling damping-off disease of certain vegetable crops. Alexandria Journal of Agricultural Research 32(1): 333-344

Seeds of broadbean (Vicia faba Balady), bean (Phaseolus vulgaris Contender) and squash (Cucurbita pepo Askandrani) were treated with calcium carbonate, hot saturated calcium hydroxide solution, hot water, and captan. Seeds were planted in soil inoculated with Pythium sp. and Rhizoctonia solani for broadbean, Fusarium solani and R. solani for bean and 2 isolates of R. solani for squash; a set was kept uninoculated as control.
