Prevention and control of garlic rot
Author(s): Afsha Khan, RB Sharma
Abstract: Post-harvest diseases entail huge loses, and hence. It is not surprising that considerable effort has been directed towards the development of efficient methods for their control, although the disease caused by ‘wound pathogens’ can be avoided by proper harvesting handling and scientific storage but more often than not these precautions fail to provide desired level of disease control and hence additional precautions in the form of ‘chemical precaution’ become necessary. In fact, chemical protection is inseparable from an integrated control planning against many post-harvest diseases, for it reduces inoculum density, eradicates, inactivates or destroys the pathogens or cures the diseased entities.
