Vegetable growers will start transplanting their crops soon. In order to reduce risk of introducing soil-borne pathogens in field it is important to screen your transplants before for symptoms particularly those that are caused by Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia. If the seedlings appear diseased, identification of the problem is critical. Do not transplant seedlings from trays containing plants with disease symptoms. Train your workers to discard seedlings with symptoms before planting. If unsure, please use UGA Extension (Local County Agent) for diagnosing disease symptoms.
