USE OF SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDES IN CYCLAMEN
Experiments carried out with two systemic fungicides to control Nectria radicicola infection of cyclamen gave very promising results. Use of Benlate or of NF 35 at a dosage of 50 g a.i. per m3 of soil gave a very good seedlings control of the parasite. Use of these fungicides at the same rate in the pot soil is also advantageous.
Although both compounds are systemic, they have 3 months after application no more protective effect against an infection.
The effect of Thiram is insufficient to control a Nectria infection of cyclamen.
