RAKESH R. PANCHAL AND B.V. RAOL

Abstract

Fusarium monillforme Sheldon Var. Subglutinans (Wolleuw and Reink) a filamentous fungus was isolated from leaves, stems and root specimens from wilted sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) plants as well as from rhizosphere and root free soils of wilted sugar cane plants varieties Co-C - 671, Co - 8338 and Co - 6806 under cultivation in agricultural fields of South Gujarat region. The in vitro effect of eight different carbon sources viz. Glucose, Maltose, Mannitol, Xylose, Lactose, Cellulose and Sucrose as well as of six different inorganic nitrogen sources viz. Ammonium hydrogen phosphate, Ammonium sulphate, Sodium nitrate, Ammonium chloride, Ammonium nitrate and Ammonium oxalate were performed on the vegetative growth of F. moniliforme Sheldon. Mannitol and Ammonium hydrogen phosphate proved to be the best suitable carbon and nitrogen sources respectively for the in vitro vegetative growth of F. moniliforme Sheldon isolated from wilted sugar cane fields.
