Botrytis Blight of Flowering Potted Plants

Margery L. Daughtrey, Robert L. Wick, Joseph L. Peterson

Management Recommendation(s)

Botrytis blight is very common in greenhouse crops. Control of B. cinerea is challenging because of its abilities to survive as a saprophyte, rapidly invade host tissues, and quickly produce abundant conidia. Sanitation alone is not sufficient for minimizing losses. A management program should focus on prevention and combine environmental management, cultural practices, and fungicides.
