Pathogenicity of Fusarium solani (Mart.) Sacc. isolates derived from different plants towards the yellow lupine (Lupinus luteus L.) and the French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Languages of publication
The research was conducted to define Fusarium solani specialisation in infecting the yellow lupine and French bean as well as to select nonpathogenic isolates of the fungus to be used in biological control of pathogenic forms of the genus Fusarium. The experiment was conducted in test tubes and pots under laboratory conditions, at 10oC and 20oC with 29 F. solani isolates derived from different plants and from the soil. The pathogenicity of the studied isolates differed considerably. The isolates which were not excised from the yellow lupine and French bean also showed high pathogenicity, which points to lack of F. solani specialisation in those plants. Four of the investigated isolates proved to be slightly pathogenic. None of the obtained isolates was nonpathogenic.
