Does cultivation reduce soil-borne diseases? locations
Aims
  • Assess the influence of soil renovation treatments on soil borne diseases.
Key messages
  • The monitoring undertaken showed no evidence for significant reduction of soil borne disease by ripping and cultivation.
  • The spatial variability of soil borne diseases dictates that careful site selection, small plots, multiple replications and intensive sampling is required to obtain meaningful results.
