Please note that this presentation is not intended to imply that fabric mulch should not be used when growing parsley. The point that is being made is that higher soil moisture /poor areation encourages the develoment of the disease and that some varieties are more susceptible than others in high soil moisture. If irrigation is being used in the dry season it would be necessary to monitor the soil moisture status.
