Abstract
Concerns regarding disease resistance in plants, the use of pesticides in the environment, and occupational exposure, have promulgated the development of alternative methods for traditional disease control practices. This project examines a possible alternative to conventional fungal control measures through the use of electrochemical activation technology to produce anolyte solutions that may effectively control fungal growth in an environmentally safe and responsible manner, as well as whether an "inexpensive," portable anolyte producing piece of EcaFlo(TM) equipment may be commercially beneficial for use in agricultural spraying and/or irrigation practices.
