Rhizoctonia damping-off, blight and rot
Infections by the fungi Rhizoctonia solani lead to damping-off, blight, and rot. Typical symptoms include wilted seedlings and eventual death, seed and root rot, lesions on hypocotyls, and cankers on the lower stem.
Signs of damage:
Rhizoctonia solani can cause seed rot, root rot and lesions on hypocotyls. Damping-off occurs when germinating seedlings are infected prior to emergence. Reddish-brown, sunken lesions form on hypocotyls of young seedlings.
