Factors influencing competitive saprophytic ability of Sclerotium rolfsii in soil






Indian Phytopathology 40(4): 495-499

Factors influencing competitive saprophytic ability of Sclerotium rolfsii in soil

The highest competitive saprophytic colonization (CSC) of biological baits (boiled sorghum seed) occurred with 250 sclerotia/100 g soil at 35 degrees C and pH ranging from 3-7 (max. at 4.5). S. rolfsii colonized the seeds at 25-75% water holding capacity, with a max. at 50%.
