Abstract

We evaluated effects of two green manures and an organic fertilizer on yellow squash (Curbita pepo) growth following inoculation with Phytophora capsici (0.5% v/v). Green manures were Indian mustard (Brassica juncea c.v. 'Pacific gold') and a rye (Secale cereale) vetch (Vicia villosa) mixture applied at 0, 1, 2, 4 and 16 kg/m2 and irrigated with treated or untreated water. The water treatment was an organic fertilizer containing hydrolyzed soy meal, humic acid, and a range of beneficial bacteria. The green manures did not have any significant impact on growth of the yellow squash. Plants that were treated with the fertilizer had longer shoots after 5 days.
