Rhizoctonia Root Rot

Symptoms:

Primarily attacks seedlings and young plants. Reddish-brown spots appear on lower stems. Most infected plants die as seedlings.

Solution:

Shallow seeding depth and planting in thoroughly warm soil helps. Use the disease-fighting Trichoderma harzianum as a soil drench on seedlings, transplants and established plants. We recommend Root Guardian Biofungicide for Soilborne Diseases.
