AIMS This study evaluated the effect of temperature (0-38 degrees C) and water activity (a(w): 0.87-0.99) on the lag phase prior to germination and the percentage of germination over time for Monilinia laxa, Monilinia fructicola and Monilinia fructigena. METHODS AND RESULTS More than 80% of viable conidia germinated at 25 degrees C and 0.99 a(w) within 2 h for M. fructicola and M. fructigena and 4 h for M. laxa. There was no germination at 38 degrees C, and all three Monilinia spp. germinated… CONTINUE READING
