seed treatment with NFP was not effective in controlling the diseases caused by the fungal pathogens R. solani and Pythium spp., but was effective in controlling bacterial speck caused by P. syringae pv. tomato. It is assumed that the bacteria were only on the surface of the seed and not borne internally. If the bacterial pathogen was borne within the seed, the results may have been less impressive. The results obtained in the above study indicate that the use of NFP (Stubble-Aid™) as a soil treatment may be effective on its own or as an integrated measure in controlling soilborne diseases of tomato and pepper, in seedbeds, the greenhouse or field.
