Abstract

Various chemical and non-chemical treatments were tested for their efficacy against damping-off in papaya seedlings caused by Pythium aphanidermatum. Three-week-old papaya seedlings were placed in a climate controlled experimental chamber and inoculated with macerated mycelium of P. aphanidermatum. Propamocarb as Previcur was found to be most effective at managing damping-off in papaya seedlings.
