Influence of host on behavior ofSclerotinia sclerotiorum

  • Yang Qian
  • Ma Ling


All these hosts became less susceptible as the plants matures. Ascospores were unable to infect linseed leaves in the absence of an exogenous nutrient base. Even though sucrose could be used as an exogenous nutrient to stimulate the ascospores to germinate, the ascospores subsequently failed to infect undamaged linseed leaves. Linseed flower petals were an effective nutrient base which stimulated ascospores to germinate as well as to infect undamaged linseed leaves.
