Title: Hardwood Diseases in Plantations and Nurseries

Author: Filer, T. H. Jr.;

Date: 1979

Source: In: Proceedings 1978 Southern Nursery Conferences. Technical Publication SA-TP6. 165-166.

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: Root disease is the most important problem of hardwoods in nurseries with most mortality from damping-off occurring during the first 6 weeks of seedling emergence. The root rots can persist throughout the growing season and cause stunting that makes seedlings unsaleable. Chemical fumigation of nursery beds is the best control method available for root disease. Methyl Bromide, Vorlex, Dowfume MC-33, Telone C, or Chlor-o-pic will reduce production cost by controlling root diseases and weeds.
