During the past decade sclerotinia rot has become a major disease problem in metropolitan market gardens.
The fungicide Allisan has given promising results as a cover spray for the control of Sclerotinia. Two applications of the material reduced the incidence of Sclerotinia in runner beans from 45 per cent, to 15 per cent, and in lettuce from 9 per cent, to 2 per cent.
