Abstract Aspects of the biology of C. minitans and its potential for control of S. sclerotiorum were investigated. Temperatures below 7°C resulted in comparatively slow rates of germination and infection of sclerotia by C. minitans. The optimum temperature for germination, growth, infection of sclerotia, and destructive parasitism by C. minitans was 20°C. The optimum relative humidity for germination, growth and infection by C. minitans was above 95%. Autumn inoculations with suspensions of… CONTINUE READING
