Biological Control Measures to Reduce the Late Season Collapse of Melon
Zitter, Thomas A.
Sudden wilt or late season collapse of melon is a major impediment to the commercial production of this crop in New York. The agent or agents responsible for the cause of sudden wilt has been the subject of research and speculation for nearly 60 years. An attempt was made in 1997 to establish if Verticillium dahliae, a ubiquitous soilborne pathogen, might be one of the biological factors responsible for sudden wilt.
