Rust -

  • Infection is worse on nitrogen-rich soils with low potassium, so take care with fertiliser applications
  • Do not crowd plants, as this raises humidity and increases the likelihood of infection
  • Keep well weeded
  • Dispose of all plant debris at the end of cropping

Disease Prevention  (general)

Watering: Don’t water in the evening/night as this moisture will linger overnight and allow the perfect environment for fungus to creep in – water in the morning so the plants can dry out throughout the day

Soil: If you have heavy clay soils, you can do things like add sand,compost, and plant your garlic in mounds.

Tools: When dealing with any type of plant disease it’s important to sterilise your tools/materials that came into contact with it

Crop Rotation: To prevent lots of different soil diseases, rotate your vegetable families each season.
