Soil Fumigation, Cover Cropping, and Organic Soil Amendments: Their Effect on Soil-Borne Pathogens and the Target Seedling
Hamm, Philip B. ; Hansen, Everett M.
1990: Roseburg, OR
Results of two studies are reported dealing
with the impact of three common cultural nursery practices
(fumigation, cover cropping and organic soil amendments) on
soilborne populations of Fusarium and Pythium. The influence
of these practices on seedling quality, mortality, and number
of seedlings meeting packing standards is included. The
potential use of Brassica sp. as a cover crop to lower
propagule counts of soilborne pathogens is discussed.
