The use of a plastic tunnel for soil solarization in protected crops in southern Italy

, : The use of a plastic tunnel for soil solarization in protected crops in southern Italy. Informatore Fitopatologico 44(3): 52-57

The effect of soil solarization using a plastic tunnel on the occurrence of lettuce drop caused by Sclerotinia minor and on the presence of weeds was investigated in Salerno, Italy. Air temp. in the tunnel reached over 60 degrees C and soil temp. 45-55 degrees. Soil solarization resulted in a 50-67% decrease in lettuce drop and an increase in productivity, particularly where the ground was covered with black or colourless polyethylene film.

However, alternation of solarization in summer...
