Infection of linseed by Alternaria linicola : Effects of inoculum density, temperature, leaf wetness and light regime
Controlled environment studies were conducted to determine the effects of inoculum density, temperature, leaf wetness and light regime on the infection of linseed by Alternaria linicola. The % cotyledons and leaves with ...
Germination of Alternaria linicola conidia on linseed : effects of temperature, incubation time, leaf wetness and light regime
Conidia of Alternaria linicola germinated on both water agar and linseed leaves (detached or attached) over a wide range of temperatures (5-25 degrees C) by producing one to several germ tubes. At temperatures between 10 ...
Periodicity and gradients in dispersal of Alternaria linicola in linseed crops
Conidia of Alternaria linicola produced on infected linseed crops were mainly dispersed by wind. The numbers of conidia in the air above linseed crops collected by a Burkard spore sampler were greatest between 12:00 h and ...
Survival and seed to seedling transmission of Alternaria linicola on linseed
Alternaria linicola survived as thick-walled chlamydospores in hyphal or conidial cells on infected linseed stem debris, either on the soil surface or buried in the soil, during the period between the harvest of linseed ...
