Tests for Soil-borne Fungal and Bacterial Diseases (Molecular Diagnostics Services)

Available tests include:

Verticillium – Pythium – Fusarium – Phytophthora – Rhizoctonia – Phoma – Armillaria – Alternaria - and more

also, multiple tests like:

  • Pythium + Fusarium
  • Vert + Pythium + Fusarium
  • Vert + Pythium + Fusarium + Phytophthora

For example in potato fields, soilborne disease complex that affect crop development include Rhizoctonia canker, black dot, potato early dying (Verticillium wilt) and numerous nematodes. Soilborne disease complex that affect tuber quality include common scab, powdery scab, pink rot, leak, black dot, black scurf, root-knot nematode, and Fusarium dry rot.

With knowing the type of pathogens in a particular field and their levels of threat, disease complex can be managed by the integration of crop rotation, cultural practices, host resistance and agrochemicals.
