EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE AND PATHOGEN ISOLATE ON STRAWBERRY RESISTANCE TO ANTHRACNOSE CAUSED BY THREE SPECIES OF COLLETOTRICHUM

B. Denoyes
In France, only two species of Colletotrichum have been reported to cause anthracnose of strawberry: C. acutatum and C. gloeosporioides. The species C. fragariae has not been observed. To improve the strategy of strawberry breeding for resistance to anthracnose, the effects of temperature and French isolates of Colletotrichum on strawberry have been studied. Results were compared to those obtained with C. fragariae where an effect of temperature on the susceptibility of strawberry to anthracnose has been described by others (Delp and Milholland, 1980; Smith and Black, 1987).
