Plant pathology:Grey Mould on Italian Chicory.

Cicoria pan di zucchero
Grey Mould (Botrytis cinerea) is a fungal disease which is more common during cool wet weather such as what we have been experiencing lately. Brown rotted areas appear at the heart of this Italian chicory variety and this can be accompanied by greyish furry growth. The plant will eventually collapse but should be removed at the first sign of any damage and placed in a bin.
