  1. Effect of <em>Busseola fusca</em> on the incidence of maize ear rot caused by <em>Fusarium moniliforme</em> and <em>Stenocarpella maydis</em>

    Effect of <em>Busseola fusca</em> on the incidence of maize ear rot caused by <em>Fusarium moniliforme</em> and <em>Stenocarpella maydis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The influence of Busseola fusca incidence and damage on Fusarium moniliforme and Stenocarpella maydis ear rots was studied in the field using artificial infestation with B. fusca, mechanical damage and pathogen inoculation. B. fusca infestation increased the incidence of F...
  2. Evaluation of maize hybrids for kernel colonization by <em>Fusarium moniliforme</em> and <em>F. subglutinans</em>

    Evaluation of maize hybrids for kernel colonization by <em>Fusarium moniliforme</em> and <em>F. subglutinans</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Maize kernels from six commercially grown hybrids were collected from various localities for three seasons. The incidence of kernel colonization by Fusarium moniliforme and F. subglutinans was determined by plating out 400 representative kernels per sample onto a Fusarium spp...
  3. The effect of crop rotation with wheat and oats on the incidence of <em>Fusarium</em> crown rot of wheat

    The effect of crop rotation with wheat and oats on the incidence of <em>Fusarium</em> crown rot of wheat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Crown rot is a serious disease of wheat in the central and western parts of the Orange Free State. The disease, caused mainly by Fusarium graminearum Group 1, is difficult to control and crop rotation has been suggested as a...
  4. <em>Fusarium</em> species in wheat grown from head blight infected seed

    <em>Fusarium</em> species in wheat grown from head blight infected seed

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The objectives of this preliminary study were to identify Fusarium species associated with wheat seed obtained from head blight infected fields and to determine whether the causal organism(s) of head blight could colonise plants systemically from infected seed. Six Fusarium...
  5. Complex of root infecting fungi isolated from maize grown under various tillage practices

    Complex of root infecting fungi isolated from maize grown under various tillage practices

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Maize root rot is common in South Africa and various factors may influence disease severity. Phoma spp., Trichoderma spp., Fusarium spp., Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid. and Exserohilum pedicellatum (Henry) Leonard and Suggs are the primary fungi isolated from infected roots...
  6. A comparison of head infection and blight development caused by <em>Fusarium graminearum</em> and <em>Fusarium crookwellense</em> in wheat

    A comparison of head infection and blight development caused by <em>Fusarium graminearum</em> and <em>Fusarium crookwellense</em> in wheat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The objectives of this study were to compare the infection of wheat heads by Fusarium graminearum and F. crookwellense and to determine the effect of temperature on head blight development induced by these species. Scanning electron microscopy of spikes of...
  7. Reaction of South African spring wheat cultivars to head blight caused by <em>Fusarium graminearum</em>

    Reaction of South African spring wheat cultivars to head blight caused by <em>Fusarium graminearum</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Head blight caused by Fusarium graminearum (Schwabe) is an important wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) disease in the centrepivot irrigation areas of South Africa. Fifteen cultivars, Gamtoos, Inia, Kariega, Marico, Nantes, Palmiet, SST 38, SST 55, SST 57, SST 65, SST...
  8. Initial studies on fungicide evaluation for efficacy in the management <em>of Fusarium</em> head blight in wheat

    Initial studies on fungicide evaluation for efficacy in the management <em>of Fusarium</em> head blight in wheat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The efficacy of the fungicides bromuconazole, carbendazim/epoxiconazole, carbendazim/flusilazole, carbendazim, cypro- conazole, flutriafol, prochloraz, propiconazole and tebucona- zole in controlling head blight was determined in the greenhouse. Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) spikes of cultivar SST 38 were inoculated at the onset...
  9. Variation in the identification of <em>Fusarium</em> spp. in maize samples due to enumerator and growth medium

    Variation in the identification of <em>Fusarium</em> spp. in maize samples due to enumerator and growth medium

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Fusarium spp. have variable phenotypic and morphological features when cultured on different media. Inaccurate identifications could result in variation in the quantification of Fusarium spp. associated with ear rot of maize when two or more researchers identify the same Fusarium...
  10. Sampling variation in the quantification of fumonisins in maize samples

    Sampling variation in the quantification of fumonisins in maize samples

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Fumonisins produced by F. verticillioides and F. proliferatum cause mycotoxicoses in horses, swine and rats and have been associated with oesophageal cancer in humans. Accurate measurement of mycotoxins is essential for determining the safety of grain and their products for...
