Abstract

Control effects of phosphorous acid were investigated on three diseases. For Phytophthora blight of red pepper, protective and curative effects of phosphorous acid at the concentration of $1,408{\mu}g$ a. i./mL were 91.0% and 80.0%, respectively. In case of late blight of tomato, caused by Phytophthora infestans, protective and curative effects were 63.4% and 13.0% at the same concentration, respectively. However, the protective and curative effects of phosphorous acid increased by decreasing inoculum density of Phytophthora infestans. The protective effects of phosphorous acid on control of Phytophthora blight of red pepper was persisted for 4 days with high control efficacy (94.0%). The protective and curative effects of phosphorous acid ($1,408{\mu}g$ a. i./mL) on cucumber downy mildew were 82.0% and 62.0% respectively. The foliar application of phosphorous acid also promoted shoot growth and fresh weight of red pepper.
