Fusarium

Root Rot (on Beans)

Description: Slow growth and appearance of red spots or

streaks on lower stem and roots. First true leaves prematurely

yellow and drop off. Diseased plants often stay alive

by producing new roots near the soil surface; however,

yield is severely reduced or eliminated.

Solution: Minimizing

soil compaction is very helpful in reducing fusarium

root rot. Regular rotation with cover crops is a good

way to loosen soil structure. Sprinkle SoilGardTM Microbial

Fungicide over bean seed at time of sowing,

before covering seed with soil.
