INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE, INOCULUM CONCENTRATION AND TIME COURSE IN A SCALE TEST FOR FUSARIUM RESISTANCE IN LILIUM

Th.P. Straathof, H. Inggamer
The influence of temperature, inoculum concentration and time course on the Fusarium disease development in a lily scale test is described. Five Asiatic cultivars were tested for their resistance level, using a disease rating in combination with a statistical analysis based on a threshold model for ordered categorical data. The order of the cultivars with respect to resistance was identical for all combinations of treatments. It is shown that within the limits set by the experiment a higher temperature, a higher inoculum concentration and a longer time course will increase the disease development in lily scales.
