    Soilborne diseases (e.g. Rhizoctonia, Pythium, Botrytis spp., Pratylenchus penetrans) threaten flower bulb production in the Netherlands. Since measures against these diseases do not result in sufficient control or result in a high input of pesticides Applied Plant Research investigates the development of integrated management strategies to control these diseases. Integrated management combines preventive and control measures. Different aspects and results of several preventive and control measures are discussed. The contributions of soil suppressiveness, biofumigation crops, precrops, biological control, pesticides of natural origin in integrated disease management are considered
