Coll., Saijo, drops of conidial suspension of P. oryzae, placed on detached pieces of rice leaf at points pricked by a glass capillary and held for 24 hr. at 25-30 degrees C. in a moist chamber, were then collected and centrifuged for 20 min. at 3, 000 r.p.m. The resultant supernatant strongly inhibited germination of other conidia of P. oryzae, because of a phytoalexin produced by interaction between the rice plant and the fungus.
