Integrated pest management of Botrytis leaf blight of onion



Integrated pest management of Botrytis leaf blight of onion



Acta Horticulturae (555): 129-132



The disease forecast programme BLIGHT-ALERT and conventional disease control methods were evaluated during 1987-93 in twenty-two side-by-side comparisons in growers' fields in New York, USA for the control of Botrytis leaf blight (BLB) caused by Botrytis squamosa On average, growers made 5.5 fungicide applications using BLIGHT-ALERT and 7.8 fungicide applications using conventional disease control techniques resulting in an average savings of 2.3 applications or approximately 29%.
