Re: soft brown rot of aubergine
Hi Ian. Apparently it also affects potatoes and they can be affected by irrigastion with contaminated water.I haven't experienced this, but as I am also growing aubergines I did a search, possible infection from a willd plant, http://www.nhm.ac.uk/print-version/?p=/ ... index.html
Maybe a good idea to see irrigastion goes into the soil and not on the plant.
I recently saw a good idea for slow release of water into the soil, it was a large clear water bottle with the bottom cut off, neck end inserted into the soil, then a quarter filled with sand, this slows the percolation of water into the soil into the roots which is where it's needed.
