Abstract

Brief notes on research projects and disease control measures undertaken in Singapore during 28 years are tabulated under the headings fungi, bacteria, viruses and nematodes. Currently important problems include Rhizoctonia solani on leafy vegetables, Sclerotium [Corticium] rolfsii on Oncidium spp., Pseudomonas solanacearum on tomatoes and virus diseases of Orchidaceae. Fungicide testing, varietal resistance screening and integrated management are emphasized as control strategies.
