Specific responses of some phytopathogenic fungi to fungicides.

Laboratory experiments were carried out to examine the effect of four fungicides on spore germinating potentialities, radial growth and survival of viable propagules in soil of five phytopathogenic fungal species. The test organisms were achieved from infected roots of wheat plants cultivated in the Assiut area, Egypt. These were: Altemaria alternata, Cochliobolus sativus, Drechslera halodes, Fusarium moniliforme and F. oxysporum. The fungicides reduced germ tube production and radial growth of all fungi, and the reduction increased with increase in concentration. The maximal reduction was recorded at 50 μg/ml. At this concentration, Homai prevented spore germination of all test species. Neither F. moniliforme nor F. oxysporum can grow on agar medium supplemented with 50 μg/ml of either Benlate or Homai. The suppressive effect of fungicides on spore survival in soil cultures was also noticed but seemed to be lower than in agar application. In certain treatments, the numbers of viable propagules of tested fungi were not significantly affected in autoclaved nor non-autoclaved soil.
