Soil Fumigation, Cover Cropping, and Organic Soil Amendments: Their Effect on Soil-Borne Pathogens and the Target Seedling

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.
