Phosphites (H2PO ÿ 3 ; Phi) are alkali metal salts of phosphorous acid [HPO(OH)2] that are being widely marketed either as an agricultural fungicide or as a superior source of plant phosphorus (P) nutrition. Published research conclusively indicates that Phi functions as an effective control agent for a number of crop diseases caused by various species of pathogenic pseudo fungi belonging to the genus Phytophthora. However, evidence that Phi can be directly used by plants as a sole source of… CONTINUE READING
