Notes on Pullularia pullulans in Ryegrass seed and seed-testing methods as affecting detection of certain seed-borne diseases



Notes on Pullularia pullulans in Ryegrass seed and seed-testing methods as affecting detection of certain seed-borne diseases



Ann. appl Biol, 26: 3, 630-633



Samples of seed of Lolium perenne and L. italicum from Ireland, Ayrshire, and Aberdeenshire showed the presence of Pullularia. When infected seeds were placed in a drop of water, hyaline, oblong spores measuring roughly 12 by 2 micro floated off in large numbers, but all attempts to germinate them failed. Cultures from mycelium within the seed produced masses of pink or buff-coloured spores which proceeded to bud freely.
