Management of Transplant House Spread of <i>Acidovorax avenae</i> subsp. <i>citrulli</i> on Cucurbits with Bactericidal Chemicals in Irrigation Water

Fig. 5. Evaluation of the more effective treatments for the control of spread of bacterial fruit blotch of watermelon in the transplant house. Treatments included were peroxyacetic acid (PA) at 80 µg/ml applied daily in irrigation water, PA plus acibenzolar-S-methyl (ABM) at 0.05 g/liter applied weekly, ionized copper in irrigation water alone at 1.0 µg/ml, and ionized copper in irrigation water at 0.5 µg/ml in combination with weekly ABM applications. Treatments labeled with the same letter on a given date were not significantly different at P = 0.05 by analysis of variance and Duncan’s new multiple range test.
