Surely some of the commercial growers must know.or do they have access to the cure that the home gardener is banned from using such as fruit fly prevention etc.it is very frustrating not to know the reason why this is happening.i am trying Yates Root Rot prevention at the moment.am I on the right track?

There are no experts on this website I'm sorry to say. I'm just a home gardener trying to help genuine people. I grew parsley a few years ago and about this time of year it just died in the space of a week, very healthy plant to brown in a few days. When I have a problem I go looking on the internet. Ring up your state government agricultural department. Agricultural supply companies.
