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

Plant Disease Research 10(2): 164-167

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

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.
