Damping-off, also written damping off, destructive disease of plant seedlings. Damping-off is caused by a number of seed- and soil-borne fungi and funguslike. In this article we will discuss about: 1. Introduction to Damping-Off of Seedlings 2. Symptoms of Damping-Off of Seedlings 3. Causal Organism 4. Disease Cycle. When young seedlings seem to be growing healthy one day and dying off the next, it is probably being caused by damping off. Damping off can.

Don't overfertilize with nitrogen. Rotate crops to avoid planting the same crops in the same place year after year. Employ good sanitation practices.

Damping-Off of Seedlings: Symptoms and Control

Remove and discard diseased plants. Seed often can be purchased pre-treated with fungicide. Packages having seed treatment will be clearly marked.

If not already treated, a fungicide can be added by measuring a quantity of chemical the size of two match heads into each seed packet.

Close the packet, shake vigorously, and plant directly from the packet.

Damping-off commonly occurs in flats planted for transplants. To prevent this problem, soil can be heated to kill pathogenic organisms in the soil.

This damping off of seedlings is encountered in seed beds where plants are propagated to be transplanted later to the field.

But green houses and nursery seed beds are ideal places for outbreaks of damping-off if moisture and temperature conditions are favourable. Almost any kind of plant may be attacked by damping-off fungi while in young, tender, succulent stage of development.

But the disease incidence is damping off of seedlings more upon the conditions under which the seedlings are grown than upon the particular species of plant concerned. Symptoms of Damping-Off of Seedlings: The most striking symptom is the sudden toppling over of the seedlings.

The cell wall of the rapidly growing seedlings is generally thin, and as such the tissue is particularly vulnerable.

In a very short time the pathogen causes upon invasion, rapid killing and rot of cells Fig. This occurs so quickly that the seedlings are found in a prostrate condition even before the top has had time to wilt. Often the damage may be complete before emergence of the seedlings above ground.

After the seedlings have fallen over they may continue to decay, damping off of seedlings the ground is wet and the air humid, until entirely rotted away, or if drier conditions damping off of seedlings the top may wilt and dry up after toppling over.

Damping-off

damping off of seedlings Damping-off of seedlings actually occurs in two stages: This is the stage when the young seedlings are killed before they reach the surface of the soil when the hypocotyl has just emerged.

The radicle damping off of seedlings the plumule are destroyed as soon as they come out of the seed coat. Since this happens below the surface of the soil, it remains unnoticed and as such the cause of failure of seedling emergence is given to the poor quality of the seed.

During this stage the seedlings are out on the surface of the soil and on being infected by the pathogen they topple over and lie on the surface of the soil.
