Root disease profile: Fusarium
In some cases, high fertilizer levels can predispose plants to pathogenic fungi. This is especially true for plants with a longer growth cycle that remain in the greenhouse for a long time, such as cyclamens.
A common root disease is caused by the plant pathogen Fusarium, which can lead to considerable crops losses, increased fungicide applications, reduced crop quality, added cost and increased labor.
Fusarium can attack plants on the plant foliage, plant roots and, in certain occasions, nursery tree seed. Fusarium can cause a multitude of symptoms from leaf spots to cutting rot, crown rot, wilt, bulb rot and even root rot. Fusarium spores move easily with water and can be splashed from one plant to another.
