If your avocado tree has root rot, working crushed gypsum into the soil can usually stop it from getting worse.
Water your tree less. Over-watering can cause both fungal growth and root rot.
Check the drainage. If water is not properly draining away from the roots, it can cause many issues.
Applying wood mulch over the roots can promote healthy growth and inhibit fungal disease.
