Efficacy of novel products for the control of Phytophthora rubi raspberry root rot


Raspberry root infection by Phytophthora rubi leads to root rot, wilt and cane death. Crop loss occurs in field-grown crops, but can also occur in container-grown crops. Losses still occur on sterilised soil and in field or container grown crops using the current range of fungicide drenches. This project seeks to identify novel products, including at least one biological, and to test their efficacy as preventative drenches in inoculated pot tests.
