Rhizoctonia Stem Rot of Poinsettia - Sequential Application of Biocontrol Agents for Control of Stem Rot in Propagation and Finishing
Sequential Application of Biocontrol Agents for Stem Rot in Prop
Rhizoctonia Solani causes stem rot in propogation of poinsettia as well as root rot during the finishing stage of production. Rhizoctonia stem rot is a recurring disease in the greenhouse because the pathogen can survive on crop debris left after a production cycle ends.
