Four plant pathogenic fungi, namely, Phytophthora sp., Pythium sp., Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn, and Fusarium oxysporum Schlechtendahl, were used to determine the reduction of mycelial growth using the optimum medium obtained above.
The spore suspension (approximately 1 x [10.sup.6] spores/ml) was prepared by passing through sterilized four-layered gauze to remove mycelial fragment and stored at 4[degrees]C before use.
Inhibition of mycelial growth could further be explained by the multisite activity of the fungicide such as Milraz (Propineb and Cymoxanil), which inhibits synthesis of nucleic acids, amino acids, and other cellular processes [25].
For trials of both PAHs, changes in the patterns of sporulation and pigmentation formation characteristic of each fungus were noted during the daily recording of mycelial growth (Figure 2).
