Etiology of Peanut Pod Rot in Nicaragua: II. The Role of Pythium myriotylum as Defined by Applications of Gypsum and Fungicides

J. Augusto, T. B. Brenneman, and A. S. Csinos

February 2010

This study focused on the role of parasitic Pythium spp. and their interaction with calcium availability on pod rot incidence and peanut yield.
