Abstract:

Soil-borne diseases result from a reduction of biodiversity of soil organisms. Restoring beneficial organisms that attack, repel, or otherwise antagonize disease-causing pathogens render a soil disease-suppressive. Plants growing in such suppressive soil resist diseases much better than in soils low in biological diversity. Beneficial organisms increased to the soil environment through the use of compost and other organic amendments. Soil solarization significantly increased in soil temperature (10-12°C) was observed as compared to non-solarized plots at 5, 10 and 15 cm depths, however, maximum rise in temperature (58°C and 56.1°C) was recorded at 5 cm depth during 2013 and 2014, respectively. Further soil solarisation was also found effective in reducing the pathogen population.
