The fungistatic effect of soil inhibiting the germination of conidia & microsclerotia of the fungus was overcome by root exudates, more so by those from a host plant (tomato) than from a non-host (wheat). There was evidence that amino acids or other nitrogenous compounds contained in the alkaline fraction of the exudates exerted a stimulating action.
