    Black shank resistance in air-cured tobacco - South Africa

    DE BEER M.C.; TERBLANCHE J.
    ARC, Agricultural Research Council - Institute for Industrial Crops, Rustenburg, South Africa
    In the South African air-cured tobacco producing regions, black shank, caused by Phytophthora nicotianae var. nicotianae, is a major concern. The control of this disease is based only on crop rotation and chemical control by means of metalaxyl derivates. ...
