Damping-Off

(Lettuce)

Description: Seed decay, sudden wilting of seedlings, loss

of vigor. Favored by high moisture level and poorly

drained soils. Damping-off disease occurs wherever lettuce

is grown.

Solution: Minimize

soil compaction and plant in well-drained soil. Alternating

with cover crops helps general soil fertility and decreases

soil compaction. Sprinkle SoilGardTM Microbial

Fungicide over seed at time of sowing, before

covering seed with soil. When starting seed indoors,

mix SoilGard with potting soil before seed is sown.
