Germination of individual microsclerotia ofVerticillium dahliae

  title={Germination of individual microsclerotia ofVerticillium dahliae},
  author={Y. Ben-yephet and Y. Pinkas},
Viability of individual microsclerotia (MS) ofVerticillium dahliae of different sizes (<37 μm, 37–74 μm, 75–125 μm) was studied throughout repeated transfers in a moist chamber. Germination rate and number of germinating hyphae were positively correlated with the size of the MS. After 13 transfers, some MS of the above size ranges still germinated; some MS germinated until they lost their viability; others did not germinate for a while and then started germinating again. The length of… CONTINUE READING
