Silicon has been useful in protecting agronomically important crops against diseases. As the avocado industry looks towards using less fungicides we investigated the possible use of silicon for the control of postharvest anthracnose of ‘Hass’ avocado. We found injecting soluble silicon into trees prior to harvest significantly decreased the severity and incidence of anthracnose. A combination of soluble silicon and phosphorous acid was not effective for control of anthracnose.
