Inhibition of germination of Alternaria spores by sulfur dioxide under various moisture conditions



Inhibition of germination of Alternaria spores by sulfur dioxide under various moisture conditions



Phytopathology 55(5): 525-527



Reduction of germination of Alternaria spores after exposure to sulfur dioxide (SO2) was quantitatively proportional to the SO2 concentration and to the exposure time. Wet spores were more sensitive than dry spores to SO2. The sensitivity of dry spores to SO2 increased rapidly when they were placed in a water-saturated atmosphere. Spores incubated at lower relative humidities were more resistant to SO2 than wet spores or those hydrated in a saturated atmosphere for 4 hr.
