For the culturing of many species of fungi such as Pleurotus species, PDA was the most suitable media to obtain a high level of mycelial growth (Munsur et al.
Thus, the lower concentration of cells may be used in the future since the same inhibitory effect will be observed on mycelial growth (Table 2).
These physiological parameters have been reported to be important for the structure and activity of fungal mycelium, which may at least partially explain the inhibition of CPT on the mycelial growth of R.
Therefore, although strong inhibition of the mycelial growth is not visible, a few of these treatments could exert a high spore germination inhibition rate in L.
