Phytophthora capsici is a destructive pathogen of cucurbit and solanaceous vegetables. All cultivars of squash are considered susceptible to phytophthora root, crown, and fruit rot ( Babadoost and Islam, 2003 ; Cafe et al., 1995 ); losses in

The oomycete Phytophthora capsici is a soilborne pathogen that causes severe and even complete yield loss in pepper worldwide ( Lamour et al., 2012 ). In Brazil, pepper root rot caused by P. capsici was observed for the first time in 1952 in São
