  • Selected isolates of Hymenoscyphus ericae (Read) Korf and Kernan, Oidiodendron griseum Robak, O. maius Barron, and a second O. Robak species were evaluated as inocula for in vitro establishment of micropropagated plantlets of Pieris floribunda (Pursh ex Sims) Benth. and Hook. Severity of shoot necrosis on microshoots differed for each isolate of Oidiodendron. Inoculation of micropropagated plantlets with isolates of H. ericae benefited initial shoot and root development on agar-solidified Woody… CONTINUE READING
