Hello all,

I made some pear crosses last year and I am currently growing the seedlings under grow lights. Most of the seedlings are beginning to suffer; symptoms are as follows: The leaves starting from the tip are turning black, and eventually moves back to cover the entire leaf. In others, the stem turns black and in time evelopes the seedling. I have been removing all dead seedlings and cutting off blackend leaf material. Does anyone have an idea what this problem is and how to prevent it?

Thanks for your help,
