Title:
INFLUENCE OF SOIL FUNGICIDES ON PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY OF PEPEROMIA GRISEO ARGENTEA ‘BLACKIE’

Authors:
P.F. Colbaugh and S.J. Terrell

pp: 634-640

Abstract:
Soil-borne diseases are important constraints to efficient production of many types of greenhouse crops. Direct plant losses and delayed growth of crops affected with various types of root and stem rotting diseases contribute to higher production costs, unpredictable growth, and reductions in plant quality at the time of sale. Familiarity and use of sanitary growing practices advocated by Baker, et al. (1) are necessary for control of soil-borne diseases. The growing medium and container, the plant used for production and cultural operations are potential avenues of entry for soil-borne pathogens into the crop production cycle. Sanitary production practices can be effectively used to eliminate soil-borne pathogens from greenhouse production programs provided the procedures are uniformly adopted for all facets of the growing operation.
