Abstract


The damage caused by Mycosphaerella fragariae infection is one of the main foliar diseases of wild strawberries. The leaf spot disease decreases significantly the photosynthetic area and the quality of the fruits. This fungal disease caused by Mycosphaerella fragaria is an important factor that is limiting the crop production and it causes high costs due to yield losses and expensive pesticide applications. Traditionally, the main procedure for disease control in wild strawberry production depends on chemical treatments and pre-plant fumigation. Recently, alternative methods of disease control have been sought and researched, because of the increasing request for organic food. This study evaluates the effect of two organic treatments for the leaf spot disease on wild strawberry irrigated crop.
