Explanation of Dampening off syndrome
Stems of seedlings become thin, and the fall over.
The two fungi that are most often associated with damping-off are Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium species.Most pathogens that cause damping-off diseases can also cause disease as the plant grows to maturity. Root rot, crown rot, stem lesions, basal rot, crater rot, bottom rot, and stem girdling diseases may all be associated with damping-off fungi attacking mature plants
