Rhizoctonia Factsheet

Plain text source: 
Plants with Rhizoctonia have shortened brown 'spear-tipped' roots... Rhizoctonia cannot be eliminated but can be suppressed to a level that doesn't cause economic loss... n seasons with an early break, remove volunteer plant growth as soon as possible, using either cultivation or herbicides help roots avoid inoculum through encouraging faster early growth Rhizoctonia can only attack very young plant roots so anything that increases early root growth can significantly reduce disease..
