Backman – Silicon against disease broccoli tomatoes Penn state university.pdf
Biological control treatments typically are not as effective as organic chemical treatments for management of crop diseases. Similarly, fertilizers based on phophorous or silicon have been demonstrated to suppress but not control diseases. These types of alternative disease control strategies are much needed by the organic vegetable industry to manage disease and produce quality products – but, reliability of alternative treatments must be improved. A series of studies weere conducted on several vegetable crops in 2002 to dtermine if combinations of these strategies would enhance control beyond those observed with individual treatments.
