Integrated Management of Fusarium in Florists' Crops Sensitivity of Fusarium oxysporum from Ornamentals to Selected Fungicides
Integrated Management of Fusarium in Florists’ Crops
Fusarium oxysporum can not only cause rot of roots, crown, and underground storage organs but also wilt, in most container and field-grown ornamentals. Severe outbreaks of diseases caused by the fungus consistently result in extensive production losses. Due to the high value and esthetic nature of ornamentals, a rigorous integrated disease management program including the preventive use of fungicides is essential.
