The effect of irrigation regimes on disease expression in melon plants infected with Monosporascus cannonballuswas studied during two summer growing seasons (1998 and 1999) in the Arava region of southern Israel. Less frequent and reduced irrigation postponed the onset of plant collapse and lowered disease incidence. Delaying disease development in infested(More)

Sudden wilt (vine decline) of melon caused by Monosporascus cannonballus is a problem in arid and semiarid regions worldwide. Preplanting soil disinfestation with methyl bromide, a common treatment for disease management, has been banned in many countries, raising the need for alternative disease-control measures. Soil fungicide application during the(More)
Pepper is the main vegetable crop grown in the Arava region of southern Israel. It is grown in the winter in nethouses and greenhouses. Low temperature wilt of mature pepper plants has been known for years in this region. The incidence of plant wilting was usually low when the soil was pretreated with methyl bromide. In recent years methyl bromide usage has(More)
