Management of root rot of apple through soil amendments with plant materials


, : Management of root rot of apple through soil amendments with plant materials. Plant Disease Research 10(2): 164-167

Crab apple seedlings grown in pots were partially protected from this disease, caused by Dematophora necatrix, by incorporating neem cake (10% w/w) in the soil 1 week before inoculation. Disease reduction was 52% and symptom appearance was delayed.
