Physiological studies of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri

International Journal of Agriculture and Biology (Impact Factor: 0.9). 01/1560; 8530:7-2.

ABSTRACT In vitro studies were conducted on the effect of culture, media, carbon and nitrogen sources, temperature and pH levels on mycelial growth of F. oxysporum f.sp. ciceri. The fungus grew the best on Czapek dox agar and chickpea seed-meal agar media among eight culture media that were tried. Glucose was found to be the best source of carbon whereas peptone was the best source of nitrogen. Growth of F. oxysporum was maximum at 30 0 C after seven days of inoculation, which was reduced drastically below 15 0 C and above 35 0 C. The most suitable pH level for growth of fungus was 7.0 and 6.0.
