Brief

A field trial in 2012 indicated a possible disease complex between Pythium aphanidermatum and the root-knot nematode (RKN) Meloidogyne incognita in cucumber. Two growth chamber trials were conducted to investigate this potential disease complex. The results indicate that control of RKN may be important for managing Pythium damping-off in cucumber.
