FV/PE 410

This project aims to carry out an evaluation of the broader efficacy of various approved and novel seed treatments, fungicides and bio-pesticides on both protected and outdoor lettuce.

 

This will be carried out in order to formulate a series of disease control programmes and strategies for the control of the most important pathogens of lettuce e.g. Bremia lactucae, Botrytis cinerea, Rhizoctonia solani and Sclerotinia sclerotiorum
