Under these conditions, a humid microclimate in the lower pea canopy is produced, that is conducive to disease development. Senescent flowers are considered to be the initial nutrient source for infection. Once infection has started, the pathogen can quickly infect all plant parts.
To control white mold, seed used for planting should be free of sclerotia. Dicarboximide can be used as a protectant fungicide during the flowering stage in fields with known risk of white mold. Pea cultivars with semi-leafless traits may offer advantage for reducing white mold. Rotation with cereal crops, but not with many of the broad leaf crops such vegetables, beans, soybean and oilseed rape, can reduce inoculum build-up in the soil. No resistant cultivars of pea are available although resistance in some plant introduction accessions has been reported.
