In further studies at Swansea all isolates of V. alboatrum from lucerne were highly pathogenic to the host, but V. dahliae was only slightly pathogenic. No symptoms were caused when lucerne was inoculated with isolates of both pathogens from other hosts, but isolates from lucerne could infect broad bean, strawberry, Hedysarum coronarium, and pea, and in addition, V. alboatrum was pathogenic to potato, runner beans, and several common weeds.
