Grain mouldiness of sorghum caused by Gonatobotrys ramosa Riess ex. Fresenius



Grain mouldiness of sorghum caused by Gonatobotrys ramosa Riess ex. Fresenius



Plant Pathology Newsletter 3(1/2): 9-10



With the introduction of early maturing cultivars in S. India maturity coincides with torrential rains, resulting in high incidence of grain mould. G. ramosa was isolated from affected grains and produced a white powdery growth on inoculated seed, reducing the weight and germination. Max. infection occurred when inoculation took place at anthesis. In culture, fungus growth was max. on PDA and dextrose was the best of 9 C sources tested. Good growth occurred at pH 5.5-6 and at 25 degrees C.
