Soil-borne pathogens belonging to the genus Pythium, Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia and Fusarium produce the rot of pea seeds after sowing and dumping off of seedlings, immediately after emergence. In order to prevent this inconvenient, it was organized an experience, with seed treatments in 4 variants with 4 replicates, the surface of each replicate being 7.5 m2. Experimental variants were the following: V1.Apron XL 350 ES (metalaxil M =mefenoxam 350 g/l) at rate of 1 ml/kg; V2.Previcur Energy (fosetyl aluminum 310 g/l + propamocarb hydrochloride 530 g/l) at rate of 10 ml/kg; V3.Topsin 500 SC (thiophanate methyl 500 g/l) at rate of 10 ml/kg; V4.Untreated check. There were used pea seeds of „Diana” cultivar, having a germination capacity of 89%. Seed treatment was applied by „slurry " method. The products Apron XL 350 ES and Previcur Energy applied at the rates of 1 ml/kg seeds and 10 ml/kg seeds respectively, assured the best seed protection against the studied soil-borne pathogens.
