EM•1® Microbial Inoculant applications also help control Pythium rot on Japanese radish / daikon on Kaneshiro Farm
Symptoms of Pythium rot on Japanese radish / daikon are characterized by wilting of leaves and root rot. Weekly foliar applications of EM•1 at rate of 1:50 also help control the Pythium rot on his Japanese radish radish / daikon fields.
Owen Kaneshiro's consistent weekly foliar spraying of EM•1® onto his fields resulted with a harvest on half of the field with 2,730 pounds and the other half of the field was harvested a few days later with 1,970 pounds.
Total Japanese radish "daikon" harvested from one field that suffered Pythium rot was4,700 pounds!!
Similar examples were seen on other "daikon" fields where Pythium rot was controlled with consistent EM•1® applications.
