Abstract

Ear rot caused by Fusarium species is serious problem for maize growers. Fusarium ear rot, European corn borer attack and length of ear in maize were assessed after inoculation with Fusarium verticillioides in condition of fertilization with different sources of nitrogen. No effect of fertilization on increase of the intensity of incidence of all investigated parameters was established, whereas considerably increased intensity of Fusarium ear rot in plants inoculated with F. verticillioides in all investigated fertilization treatments was established.

Key words
