    Effect of irrigation water pH and nitrogen form on Pythium seedling disease in a greenhouse float system

    FORTNUM B.A.; ANDERSON M.; RIDEOUT J.; GOODEN D.T.
    Clemson University, Pee Dee REC, Florence SC, USA
    The control of oomycete fungi, such as Pythium, provides unique challenges in hydroponic plant production systems. Pythium can rapidly spread by the release of motile zoospores into the common water bath within a greenhouse float system and cause severe ...

    Role of water temperature in the epidemiology of Pythium root rot in greenhouse float systems

    FORTNUM B.A.; MARTIN B.; RIDEOUT J.; ANDERSON M.
    Clemson University, Pee Dee REC, Florence SC, USA
    The control of oomycete fungi, such as Pythium, provides unique challenges in hydroponic plant production systems. Pythium can spread by mycelial growth from tray to tray or through the release of motile zoospores into the common water bath in a ...

    Analysis of 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D) for economic control of Meloidogyne species in a crop management system

    FORTNUM B.A.; JOHNSON A.W.
    Clemson University, Pee Dee REC, Florence SC, USA
    Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are a major group of pathogens of tobacco. Farm management decisions are typically based on a systems approach where agricultural pesticides may be targeted at several pests. The economic benefits of a pesticide ...
