An important demand for plant breeding is for genotypes resistant to fusariosis; however, maintenance of aggressive sporulating isolates of the pathogen is difficult.
Results not only indicated the decrease in bacterial population by 50 times at 37[degrees]C, but also revealed the presence of sporulating bacteria in soil, as spores can tolerate high degree of osmotic potential, temperature and irradiation.

Most of the toxin genes now being used in genetically modified (GM) crops are produced in sporulating Bt, and belong to the Cry family: designated Cry1, Cry 2 etc.
It was designed for the identification of sporulating fungal genera important in food spoilage, environmental monitoring and agriculture.
"It often happens that these fungi occur in nature as the asexually sporulating form, Cladobotryum, in the absence of their sexual state, Hypomyces.
Specifically, they have readily quantifiable components of fitness, such as discrete, sporulating lesions that result from infections by single spores that produce new generations of spores after a distinct latent period (Leonard 1990).
By sporulating, this organism can survive high temperatures during initial cooking; the spores germinate during cooling of the food, and vegetative forms of the organism multiply if the food is subsequently held at temperatures of 60 F-125 F (16 C-52 C) [3].
Because of the great variability in isolates (11), various conidial densities were used in the bioassay rather than sporulating strains.
