Last night I read wilt is a condition in the soil near impossible to treat. Suggestion don't grow rhubarb in wet damp soil, have good draining soil. It could be an iron deficient. If you have wilt pull the plants out and destroy. Don't grow that crop in that garden bed for 4 years. Use crop rotation. I may have more info tomorrow about using Dettol.

Try a cap full of Dettol in 4.5l of water and put on the soil around the plants.See how that goes.
