To isolate the fungus from diseased tissue simply place a sclerotia cepivorum piece of the disased tissue onto PDA media and allow to grow in a cool environment. Identification Identifying the fungus is possible by considering the combination of symptoms and signs observed in sclerotia cepivorum field.

This mycelial growth can usually be found when foliar symptoms first appear. It can also form large sclerotial bodies of irregular shape sclerotia cepivorum lengths varying between 0.

The sclerotia can sclerotia cepivorum found on the mycelium. Thanks to work done in the United Kingdom there are specific primers available 3.

Ecology and Life Cycle Courtesy F. Cool weather is also needed for germination of sclerotia and hyphal growth.

The soil moisture levels optimal for host root growth are also optimal for sclerotia germination. Mycelium will grow through the soil, and once it encounters a host root the sclerotia cepivorum will form appresoria, structures whose purpose is to aid in the attachment and penetration of the host.

Mycelium can grow outwards from the roots of one plant to the roots of a neighboring plant, and it is by this method that the pathogen can move down a planted row. Sclerotia are formed on the sclerotia cepivorum host tissue, and once the host tissue completely decays the sclerotia are free in soil.

If the bulbs survive long enought to be placed into storage, the sclerotia cepivorum may continue sclerotia cepivorum decay the bulbs if there is high humidity and low temperatures. If the bulbs are stored dry then the disease may not spread but bulbs infected in the field will continue to decay 5.

Sclerotium cepivorum

Variation in morphology of Sclerotium cepivorum sclerotia. The leaves eventually die and fall off [7] with the older leaves dying first sclerotia cepivorum then the aerial leaves. Soil conditions and the environment are determinants for extent of damage to the plant.

The pathogen grows in moist cold temperatures. The disease attacks at all stages of sclerotia cepivorum, which leaves the plant to turn yellow and wilt when fully developed because the roots are rotting. Mycelial growth is another symptom that appears on the roots and spreads to the sclerotia cepivorum causing it to rot.

Stromatinia cepivora - Wikipedia

This mycelial growth can be seen at the base of the stem when foliage is yellowing and the foliar symptoms are first appearing.

Black globular sclerotia, that resemble poppy seeds can also appear on the mycelium. sclerotia cepivorum


These survival structures sclerotia can detach and persist for years in a dormant state, waiting for a susceptible host. Environmental conditions influence the germination with it favoring cooler weather F. However, the sclerotia and fungal growth sclerotia cepivorum inhibited above 70 F.
