Influence of nutritional factors, pH and temperature on growth of Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc. isolated from tomato fruit



Influence of nutritional factors, pH and temperature on growth of Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc. isolated from tomato fruit



Indian Journal of Mycology and Plant Pathology 16(2): 209-212



Mycelial growth was best at c. 30 degrees C and pH 5, while most sclerotia were formed at c. 25 degrees and pH 7. Sucrose was the best C source for both processes. Among the vitamins, ascorbic acid supported the best mycelial growth and thiamine HCl promoted the max. number of sclerotia.
