Chlamydospore formation and lysis of macroconidia ofFusarium solani f.cucurbitae in chitin-amended soil


Addition of chitin to soil reduced chlamydospore formation from macroconidia ofF. solani f. cucurbitae in soil. It also inhibited the lysis of some cells of the macroconidia, which resulted in significantly higher numbers of viable although partly lysed propagules of the pathogen in chitinamended, than in untreated soil over a period of 6 weeks.
