Float beds could experience increased problems as temperatures continue to rise

-A A +A
By Rick Greenwell

 

This article is from Kenny Seabold, tobacco specialist at U.K. College of Agriculture and I wanted to share it with the tobacco farmers.

Current situation
The most common problem affecting float beds at the moment is Pythium root rot, and I expect that problem to ramp up later this week because of the warm weather that is forecasted. It’s likely that we’ll also see problems with blackleg (bacterial soft rot), particularly in float beds that are running high levels of nitrogen.
