Isolates of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. tulipae were tested for tolerance to benomyl. Although all isolates were relatively insensitive to benomyl, no tolerance was found. Some isolates, however, became tolerant to benomyl in vitro after prolonged contact with increasingly high concentrations of the compound in the medium. The properties of one of these tolerant strains are described and possible implications with regard to occurence of tolerance under practical conditions are discussed.

TLDR
Since 1972 benomyl has only occasionally been used by Dutch lily growers and then only in combination with other fungicides, especially with captafol, which has gradually decreased, but has not disappeared entirely.

TLDR
Evidence is given that under natural conditions infection more often takes place directly into the fleshy outer scale of the new bulb, often during the last weeks before the bulb skin turns brown.
Uncommon disease symptoms caused by Fusarium oxysporum in tulips forced in the glasshouse after pre-cooling at 5°C
TLDR
Rapidly developing disease symptoms not normally found in tulip bulb cultivation in The Netherlands are described, giving further evidence that the fungus is not a vascular parasite in tulips.
Acquired resistance to benomyl and some other systemic fungicides in a strain of Botrytis cinerea in cyclamen
TLDR
A benomyl-resistant strain of Botrytis cinerea was isolated from cyclamen that had been sprayed with relatively high doses of Benlate two weeks before, and resistance was retained for at least 20 weeks after repeated subculturing on fungicide-free agar.
