Abstract

Root diseases may be induced by soil-borne fungi, bacteria, actinomycetes, nematodes, or viruses, but most investigations of rhizosphere influence have focused upon fungal pathogens and this will be reflected in the present discussion. Some highlights of rhizosphere influence on pathogen behavior and root disease have been previewed (Curl 1982).
