Abstract

A fungus,in vitro producing sclerotia and stromata in which small one-celled hyaline spores are formed, appears to be the cause of a root rot resulting in a wilting of the plants. The infected roots are discoulered brownish-black as the result of the development of mycelium in the cortical tissue and the formation of xylostromata and pseudosclerotial structures in the cortical cells.
