The infection process was explored by light and electron microscopy techniques, as well as bioassays assessing phytotoxins and cell wall-degrading enzymes. We found that germ tubes of asparagus stem blight fungus were produced at 0-24 h after culture on dextrose agarose medium, and mycelia were formed at 24-48 h. Then, mycelia grew and spread continuously… CONTINUE READING
