White mycelium that collapses onto agar surface. However, confident identification to the species level may be required for detailed epidemiological or etiological research, which is possible alli the combined use of morphological and molecular techniques.

Microscope photos x magnification of conidia of each of six Botrytis species isolated from onion plants and grown on potato dextrose agar Botryits.

Until such information is generated, the three species probably should be considered of equal importance as causal agents of neck rot, and differentiation among the three species may not be as important for applied research purposes as differentiating these species from B.

Inspect garlic for symptoms and signs of the disease during the season and at harvest. Botrytis allii is able to use polysaccharide-degrading enzymes to enter their onion host. Les Botrytis des Allium.

Contact our curators Dr. Although sampling for volatile metabolites may facilitate determination of the incidence of bulbs infected with Botrytis in a bulb lot, the procedure may be limited to detection after an incubation period, combined with a protocol that triggers latent infections to become active, as described by Kritzman This will help to protect your privacy. A selective medium for isolation and identification of Botrytis spp. Species of Botrytis associated with onion crops.
