DISEASES (FUSARIUM AND MACROPHOMINA)
OBJECTIVE: Varieties with good tolerance and good crop management
- Attack at basis of stem (collet) and roots, important lodging observed with fast drying of the plant and the panicle
- Favorable factors: very hot temperature before flowering time, rapid growth of plants, high density of sowing and high nitrogen level
- Pests of weakness: in risk situations, avoid sowing sensitive varieties, limit the vegetative development of the crop by providing only the necessary nitrogen rate and reduce the sowing densities.
