ABSTRACT Potebniamyces pyri is the causal agent of Phacidiopycnis rot, a postharvest disease of pears. Infection of fruit occurs in the orchard, and symptoms develop during storage. Conidial germination of P. pyri in response to nutrient, temperature, wetness duration, relative humidity (RH), and pH was determined in vitro. Conidia germinated by either budding or developing germ tubes in various concentrations of pear juice solutions. The mode of conidial germination was nutrient-dependent. Low… CONTINUE READING
