Twelve isolates ofFusarium avenaceum Fries Sacc. originating from diseased corn plants from Germany produced Avenacein Y in amounts ranging from 0.001 to 1.6 g/kg of wheat grain. The isolates proved most pathogenic to triticale seedlings, less pathogenic to rye seedlings and least to wheat. Pathogenicity of the isolates was not correlated with their ability to produce Avenacein Y.
