Fungicides for Phytophthora

Phytophthora species are important pathogens that cause a range of diseases including root and crown rots and foliar blights in many plants. Ornamental growers and Lawn Care Operators fight root rot that can eventually lead to dieback in mature azaleas, rhododendrons and other plants. For agricultural growers, Phytophthora causes seedling damping-off and seed rot in row crops such as soybeans, as well as root rot, crown rot and fruit rot of vegetables and late blight of potatoes.
