Soilborne disease control in squash

Soilborne disease control in squash

Project Group: Pan sector

Status: Completed

Timeline: Oct, 2021 - Apr, 2022

Last Updated: 05/04/2024

Soilborne disease control, specifically Fusarium oxysporum, is the most important crop protection gap for participating sectors. Two field trials were conducted to evaluate the efficacy of six candidate compounds for Fusarium control in buttercup squash.

Field infection of Fusarium was low in the two trials and did not allow detection of differences between treatments. Trials will be repeated in the 2023/24 growing season.
