Phytophthora root rots are an important consideration in the production of container-grown plants in Western Australia. They are present and have been present in a majority of production nurseries for many years. However, with a good understanding of the factors that predispose plants to Phytophthora root rots, it is possible to avoid the problem. It is important for the producer and purchaser to be aware of the plant production methods that favour the survival, pathogenicity and spread of Phytophthora species under some conditions in the nursery and at the point of end use (home garden, horticulture, forestry and revegetation).
