We are examining if brown mustard biofumigation through tissue maceration, low till and 1 week of plastic cover could suppress soilborne diseases such as Rhizoctonia rot on lettuce, Fusarium crown rot on asparagus and Panama wilt on banana, while improve soil health that can lead to better disease management.
