Abstract

Sugar beet, it ‘disease rhizoctonia root rot, and potential biological agents

Haque ME* and Parvin MS

Sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) is supplying approximately 35% of sugar worldwide. Rhizoctonia root rots in sugar beet is a setback for commercial cultivation. Disease severity increases when the weather is warm and under wet field conditions. Generally, integrated disease management strategies that involves cultural practice, chemical control, and host resistance are routinely followed to reduce the pathogen propagules. Alternatively, biocontrol strategies are environmentally safe, generally pose little risk of developing resistant biotypes, nevertheless, there has not been much success achieved in controlling R. solani in sugar beet with biocontrol agents in the field. This review article discussed the traditional management strategies and potential biological agents of Rhizoctonia solani.
