Bottom rot caused by Rhizoctonia solani is an increasing problem in field-grown lettuce in Germany. During the growing seasons of 1999 and 2000, 95 isolates of R. solani from lettuce plants with bottom rot symptoms were collected from eight locations. The isolates were characterised using hyphal anastomosis, pectic zymograms and morphological characteristics. Ninety-three isolates were identified as anastomosis group (AG) 1-IB, one as AG 1-IC and one as AG 2-1. Optimum hyphal growth was… CONTINUE READING
