Pythium Root Rot (Damping-Off, Seed Rot) (Peas)

Pythium

Root Rot (Damping-Off, Seed Rot) (Peas)

Description: A watery rot is characteristic. Plants are

often stunted and light green because of the lack of

root development.

Solution: Plant

as early in the season as possible. Peas are a cool-season

crop, while pythium disease is most severe at temperatures

from 64°-75°F, which is higher than preferred for pea

germination. Sprinkle SoilGardTM Microbial

Fungicide over seed at time of sowing, before

covering seed with soil.
