A severe leaf spot disease on the flower stalks of seed onions is caused by a Stemphylium sp. which attacks the seed-stalk, weakening it and finally causing its collapse. The concept of applying a fungicide by a two-directional air-assisted placement spraying technique was investigated in the laboratory and subsequently proven in the field. It was shown that disease control was linear with the fungicide-protected area. Disease severity was reduced by ∼ 75% by the air-assisted placement spraying compared with ∼ 30% for cloud spraying. The results also indicated that the infection area was linearly proportional to the calculated seed yield. © 1988.
