Soil Disease for Leafy Vegetables
Due to the steadfast nature of soil diseases, best results will be obtained if a control measure is used prior to disease onset or in the earliest stages of disease development. Soil diseases vary based on crop and can be fungal or bacterial.
Leafy vegetables are susceptible to the following diseases:
- Bottom Rot (Rhizoctonia solani)
- Damping-Off (Fusarium) (Pythium spp.) (Rhizoctonia solani)
- Downy Mildew (Peronospora parasitica)* (Bremia lactucae)
- Fusarium Wilt (Fusarium oxysporum)
- Lettuce Drop (Sclerotinia Rot) (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum)* (Sclerotinia minor)*
- Phytophthora Root Rot (Phytophthora megasperma)
- Sclerotinia Stem Rot (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum)*
- Verticillium Wilt (Verticillium albo-atrum) (Verticillium dahlia)
- Yellows (Fusarium oxysporum)
