MOVEMENT OF FUSARIUM OXYSPORUM VIA EQUIPMENT

G. Miyao, M. Davis
A field test was conducted to evaluate the ability of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici to establish and infect tomato plants when diseased plant tissue was introduced in a noninfested field. Diseased tissue was collected from 2 commercial tomato fields, air-dried and a measured amount from 0.67 to 67 g of tissue was buried into preformed tomato beds in the fall and left undisturbed except for transplanting tomato seedling in the following spring. Plants with symptoms for Fusarium wilt were counted in the fall at the time of fruit ripening.
