Surface infections of Fusarium oxysporum f. gladioli and other fungi which infect gladiolus corms (bulbs) can be controlled effectively by dipping them just prior to planting. Six field trials conducted over a two-year period in the coastal area of San Diego County showed that fungicidal corm dips are an important phase of gladiolus disease control.
