Carnation fusarium wilt control with soil fumigation and fungicides
The best treatment of ground beds to control fusarium wilt in these tests was fumigation with methyl bromide. Bromide residues remaining in the soil after fumigation should be removed by leaching with water prior to planting. Where fusarium wilt is severe, as in the test area, annual fumigation is necessary. When large areas are fumigated, there should be less reinvasion from untreated areas.
