Fusarium Basal Rot (Onions)

Peppers: Hot Hybrids


Basal Rot (Onions)

Description: First seen as curving, yellowing of leaf tips,

progessively moving downward.

Solution: Do not

grow grain cover crops in rotation with onions or garlic.

Maintain soil pH at 6.5 to 7.0. Test soil pH; if it

is too acid, use ground limestone to raise pH. Most

garden centers and farm stores sell ground limestone.

Do not allow soil to thoroughly dry out. 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.
