Foliar diseases in protected crops
This poster summarises the results of a survey that was done as part of a project aimed at improving the sustainability of foliar disease management in greenouse vegetables. The main foliar diseases in greenhouse-grown cucumber, capsicum, eggplant and tomato crops are presented. The current management strategies being used are discussed along with other findings from the survey. Lack of registered fungicides was identified as one of the major threats to sustainability of the industry. The survey identified that there is a need to educate growers on how to integrate sustainable disease management practices into their existing practices.
