Well, my favorite remedy is Captan, but many people like Thyram
these days. I always dust all my seed samples with dry captan. Just dump
enough into the pa
enough into the envelope so that after shaking things aroung (in a well
ventilated space) there is a small residual that drops to the bottom of
the packet. In addition, if more is required, I use a soil drench (mixed
according to the directions). It is important to use the drench as a
pre-emptive measure when you know it will be needed. I rarely have better
than a 10% survival rate after I see symptoms. The reason I prefer Captan
is because you can use it as a soil drench as well as a seed treatment.
Thyram is only a seed treatment, and then you need to buy the Captan for
a soil drench also. Hope this helps.

ps To give you an idea of the intense need for control of fungus here in
Lansing MI, I will tell you a common expression that the locals use here.
"It will be a sunny day in Lansing before I do that again" :-}
Good Luck ---<--@
