Research on root rot pathogens of peas in the Netherlands has confirmed the prevalence ofFusarium solani, F. oxysporum, Pythium spp.,Mycosphaerella pinodes andPhoma medicaginis var.pinodella. Aphanomyces euteiches andThielaviopsis basicola were identified for the first time as pea pathogens in the Netherlands. Other pathogens such asRhizoctonia solani(More)
VanCladosporium fulvum, de veroorzaker van bladvlekkenziekte van tomaat, zijn talrijke fysio's bekend. Van tomaterassen met resistentiegen Cf5 werd, zowel bij materiaal uit Bulgarije als uit Frankrijk, een nieuw fysio, 2.5, geïsoleerd. Dit bezit naast het noodzakelijke virulentiegen 5 ook het overbodige gen 2. Dit is wéér een voorbeeld van afwezigheid van(More)
The epidemiology of Botrytis cinerea was studied in five annual strawberry crops using waiting-bed transplants, a system widely adopted in the Netherlands. On dead leaves of transplants the incidence of B. cinerea varied from 26.7% to 52.6%, but the leaf area with potential sporulation was low (3.5–15.6%). During each crop cycle, the availability of(More)
ABSTRACT The effect of the fungal mycoparasite Coniothyrium minitans applied as a spray to crops infected with Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (causal agent of white mold) on contamination of soil with S. sclerotiorum sclerotia was studied in a 5-year field experiment. Sclerotial survival also was monitored during two subsequent years, when the field was returned(More)
Twenty five isolates ofConiothyrium minitans were screened for antagonism toSclerotinia sclerotiorum in a Petri dish bioassay using tomato stem segments placed on sterile sand. The antagonistic activity of 23 isolates was quite uniform and only two less antagonistic isolates were identified. Antagonism, expressed as a reduction in the rate of tissue(More)
Isolates ofFusarium oxysporum from wilted muskmelons, watermelons, cucumbers and from the muskmelon rootstockBenincasa hispida were screened for pathogenicity on seedlings and adult plants of these crops and related species. In seedling tests the isolates were not typically species-specific, contrary to what might be expected as an implication of their(More)
Since 1994 the importance of tan spot of wheat has increased in the wheat growing areas of the Netherlands. The purpose of the present study was to determine inoculum sources of this disease caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis. Both in 1999 and 2000, the incidence of tan spot was assessed in 40 commercial fields of winter wheat scattered over the main(More)
Lettuce leaves co-inoculated withSclerotinia sclerotiorum andConiothyrium minitans and controls were placed on, or buried in, soil for a period of two weeks to study development and survival ofC. minitans. OnS. sclerotiorum-infected leaves on the soil surface, the number of colonies ofC. minitans recovered was about 40% of the number of pycnidiospores(More)
Grey mould is an important disease ofstrawberries resulting from flower and fruitinfection by Botrytis cinerea Pers. Thesaprophytic fungus Ulocladium atrumPreuss is a promising biological controlagent for control of B. cinerea instrawberry and other crops. The objective ofthis research was to determine the efficacy ofU. atrum to control grey mould by(More)
