Field trials conducted on a yellow-red latossol (pH 6.0), replicated in 2010 and 2011, sought to examine the effect of silicon, phosphite minerals, synthetic fungicides and genetic resistance for wheat blast management (Magnaporthe grisea) in Central Brazil. Disease intensity was measured on cvs. BRS 264 and BR18 subjected to the following Si treatments:(More)
The effect of the distance of initial inoculum on the intensity of watermelon gummy stem blight, caused by Didymella bryoniae, was studied in a naturally-infected rainfed commercial field. The shorter the distance from the focus, the sooner was disease onset and the earlier maximum disease levels were achieved. Maximum disease incidences were reached(More)
The use of resistant cultivars is one of the most efficient strategies for reducing the amount of pesticides in agricultural crops. Several species of the Solanaceae and Cucurbitaceae families are susceptible to diseases caused by Phytophthora capsici isolates. Even though sources of resistance have been identified in other host plants, reports of(More)
The effects of tillage systems on the dynamics of web blight caused by Thanatephorus cucumeris and yield of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) cv. Pérola were studied in three field experiments during the planting seasons of 2004/2005, 2005/2006 and 2006/2007. Congo grass (Urochloa ruziziensis) was managed in a naturally infested field to establish the(More)
