Effect of different soil and clove treatments in the control of white rot of garlic



Effect of different soil and clove treatments in the control of white rot of garlic



Annals of Applied Biology 140(3): 247-253



Soil solarisation was consistently efficacious in reducing inoculum density to undetectable levels in a field naturally-infested with Sclerotium cepivorum. This treatment delayed epidemic onset of white rot of garlic 2-3 months as compared with the untreated control or the inoculation of planting furrows with Glomus intraradices. Furthermore, significant reductions of disease incidence and of the standardised AUDPC were also observed in solarised plots, resulting in quantitative and qualitative yield improvement. Similar effects were observed in plots planted with tebuconazole-treated cloves, confirming previous results, whereas Trichoderma harzianum was ineffective as a biocontrol agent, when applied to planting furrows. The inoculation of plots with G. intraradices before planting, in three consecutive years, was neither effective for disease control nor on the development of garlic, although the root systems of garlic plants from all the experimental treatments were heavily mycorrhizal at harvest, indicating the presence of native arbuscular mycorrhizal propagules in the soil and their survival after soil solarisation.
