Application of a bioassay on serial dilutions of rhizomania-infested soil provided adequate information on the level of infestation withPolymyxa betae and beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV). Different combinations of dilution ratios ratios and numbers of replicates (N) that had the same average precision were compared. A most probable number (MPN) computer programme was written to enable the comparison, because MPN tables available in literature are limited to certain dilution ratios and… CONTINUE READING
