Field experiments during 1932 to 1934 are recorded in which uninjured, lightly scarified, and heavily scarified Mindum and Marquis wheat seed was sown in plots artificially infected in one half with Fusarium culmorum. Severe root rot was successfully induced by applying mycelium and spores of F. culmorum to the seed and soil, and every year root rot was appreciably and significantly increased by soil inoculation.
