Assess the efficacy of current hygiene methods to suppress and control PA.
Virkon and Janola significantly reduced oospore viability whereas Trigene, Phytoclean and Citricidal had little effect. All products effective against mycelial and zoospore except Citricidal. Virkon and Janola have limited application because of corrosivity and bleaching of clothing. Trigene II Advance is a suitable disinfectant for controlling PA.
