Seedling blight and foot rot of cereals caused by Fusarium avena-ceum (Fr.) Sacc. and Fusarium culmorum (W. G. Sm.) Sacc
Indian Phyto-path 4(2): 162-169
In spring, 1947, barley plants growing near Edinburgh, Scotland, were affected by pre-emergence and seedling blight, the bases constantly yielding Fusarium avenaceum and F. culmorum, Pathogenicity experiments in the greenhouse on six barley and three wheat varieties in inoculated sterile sand and with barley only in unsterilized soil showed F. culmorum to be a weak pathogen and F. avenaceum a strong one as determined by the effect on emergence and seedling infection.
