This tool summarizes published research that tests control of plant pathogens and algae using water treatment technologies.
The following video details its use.
The goal is to help you make informed decisions by providing access to research data. We do not recommend any specific technologies or dosage rates.
Water treatment alone is not likely to control pathogens and algae. Take an integrated approach to disease management, including clean plant material, growing media, containers, and the use of fungicides or biocontrol agents. Avoid overwatering because this creates conditions favorable to many diseases and algae.
