DescriptionOnce Phytophthora ramorum is introduced into a nursery on a host, its local spread and establishment is primarily dependent on sporangia and zoospore production. Nursery operators commonly use fungicides to prevent the establishment of Phytophthora –caused diseases, although current research only supports the use of fungicides for preventing infection. It is still unknown, however, what effect fungicide treatments have on sporulation, spread, and persistence of the pathogen on established infections. With this additional knowledge, fungicide treatments could be more effectively used to prevent the spread and establishment of the pathogen in nursery operations. The goal of this study was to evaluate the activity of foliar applied fungicides and biocontrol agents to inhibit sporulation and reduce pathogen persistence in ornamental hosts.
