This report details research directed towards the development of IPM based strategies for the management of key soilborne diseases (caused by pathogens Sclerotinia, Pythium, Fusarium, and Rhizoctonia spp.) in vegetable crops. It includes research into a range of techniques which may be applied broadly across a number of pathogens (eg. Biofumigation and green manures) and others which are specific to a particular host or pathogen (eg. Chemical controls and grafting). A significant part of the work has been directed toward the development and preliminary valuation of ‘novel’ strategies such as plant and fungal derived volatiles, melanin inhibitors, plant defence activators and the use of nutrients and surfactants.
