Eggplant seedlings are prone to the attack of various diseases, so growers should ensure immediate remedial action in case of stem rotting. In the early days eggplant seedling can be affected by stem rot, which can cause severe damage to the crop. This disease invades the stem of the eggplant at the base, near to the ground. In this disease, a light black or brown mark appears on the stem which, if not immediately controlled, can lead to the destruction of the plant by drying it. Farmers should keep a close eye on the seedlings and if any signs appear, immediate steps should be taken so that they do not suffer any financial loss.
