From observations of 5000 zoosporangia and sporangiophores, isolates showed different proportions of the oval form, zoosporangia size, and sporangiophores dimension (Table 3).
The proportion of zoosporangia of different forms and their sizes and the morphology of sporangiophores (Figure 3) do not appear to be useable to differentiate the virulent characteristics for isolates identified in this study (Tables 2 and 4).
The sporangiophores are unbranched; arise singly or in groups with well-developed rhizoids at the base.
The axis or peduncle upon which the ovules are borne was originally dichotomized into uni-ovulate sporangiophores.
Infected leaves from mature 7042(S) and HB 3 plants growing in the downy mildew field nursery at ICRISAT-Patancheru were detached, wiped clean of existing sporangiophores using moist cotton wool and incubated in darkness in plastic boxes for 8 h at 20[degrees]C and 100% relative humidity.
and also produces chlamydospores (chamydoconidia) in branched or un-branched chain 4 FGCC/BLS 7 Septate hyphae 5 FGCC/BLS 8 The sporangia are relatively small, globose, pyriform or pear-shaped and are supported by a characteristic funnel-shaped apophysisoften with a short projection at the top Sporangiophores are hyaline to faintly pigmented, simple or some-times branched, arising solitary from the stolons, in groups of three, or in whorls of up to seven.
The sporangiophores or stalks may be lacking and a lamina or leafy component may or may not be present.
