Very interesting idea. Any clue what concentration? And would it have to be pure CaCl2 or would a commercial salt replacement (icemelt product) work? Will this work be published perhaps in a hort jnl?

Hmm... I wonder if seedlings germinated/grown in Ca(NO3)2 obtain any similar added resistance to damping off.

I'm not sure when the paper will be published. Here's an earlier work from the same group where they characterized 49 Botrytis isolates:
