The effect of fungicides on the growth of soy pathogens of the Fusarium genus.

Abstract

Expansion of soybean production leads to increasing of demand for quality, including seed free from plant pathogenic fungi. The mycological analysis of soybean stem and leaves samples from the Primorye Territory (2017) revealed the predominance of Fusarium fungi. Comparative assessment of effect of four fungicides on the growth of five Fusarium species with submerged cultivation has showed a significant difference in the influence of fungicides on growth of all analyzed strains. The increasing of soybean acreage in Russia and the possible invasion of new pathogens with seeds enhances the relevance of research in effective methods of plant protection.
