Abstract

Penicillium corymbiferum is shown to be a parasite of hyacinth bulbs. The symptoms are described. Cold storage at 9°C was most favourable for development of the disease. Although the attack during storage was higher at 80% RH than at 50% RH, storage at 9°C and 50% RH does not decrease the attack after planting.

Samenvatting

Er is aangetoond datPenicillium corymbiferum een parasiet van hyacintebollen is. De symptomen van deze ziekte worden beschreven.

Een bewaartemperatuur van 9°C geeft een sterkere aantasting dan bewaring bij 25°C of 13°C. Hoewel na een bewaring bij 80% RV de aantasting sterker is dan na bewaring bij 50% RV, is het verschil niet groot genoeg om praktische toepassingsmogelijkheden te doen verwachten. Vooral omdat de aantasting na het planten voor beide behandelingen gelijk is.
