Abstract

Low Water Availability Enhancing Soil Receptivity to Fusarium Pathogen: Case of Root Rot on Mulberry

In mulberry, Fusarium root rot (FRR) causes considerable damage with the symptoms being the most visible in the dry season. A study was conducted using mulberry plants grown in pots to evaluate the effect of soil water availability on the Fusarium disease incidence and the pathogen and other microbe populations in the soil. Treatments consisted of low, medium, and high soil water availabilities in the range between the permanent wilting point and the field capacity.
