Abstract

To date the majority of work on the systemic fungicide phosphite (phosphonate) to control Phytophthora diseases has been conducted on horticultural crops. There is a paucity of work on the control of Phytophthora root and collar rots in natural plant communities. This paper gives an overview of studies conducted in Western Australia which examine the potential of using phosphite in plant communities rich in diversity and heavily impacted by Phytophthora cinnamomi. Details are given on possible beneficial and detrimental effects of using phosphite in natural plant communities to control P. cinnamomi.
