Entry is gained through wounds in the roots and stems. Loss from this disease can be greatly reduced by n simple process of dipping the slips before they are set out. Fur a protective dip, a suspension of wettable Spergon may be used at the rate of 2 ounces to a gallon of water or one pound to eight gallons of water.
