Soilborne root pathogens in production nurseries

The purpose of this paper is to provide information on destructive soilborne fungal pathogens that can occur in production nurseries, how they can be spread and how they can be managed. Practical application of this knowledge will lead to healthier plants, as well as improved plant growth and greater uniformity. It will also help to minimise biosecurity risks. Several serious soilborne pathogens are being spread around the world with nursery plants. As “best practice” is fundamental to the production of healthy plants, short cuts should never be taken.
