Low nitrogen fertility and the presence of crop residue on the soil surface were coincident with low incidence of rot. Potassium fertilization contributed slightly to decreased disease incidence. All factors that decreased disease incidence were also closely correlated with retarded early growth. Yield was depressed by severe infestation. However, it was impossible to show differential effect of disease on yield as affected by treatment because of interactions of yield, treatment, and disease incidence.
