Fusaria Isolated from South Indian Soils

Naturevolume 168page561 (1951) | Download Citation



IN connexion with work on Fusarium wilt of cotton in South India, I took up in 1947 a detailed study of Fusarium floras of certain South Indian soils, particularly ‘wilt-sick’ black cotton soils. Wide occurrence of Fusaria in soils has been reported from a number of countries, though no such detailed survey has been undertaken in India. The present work was directed towards determining the different species of Fusarium that occur in ‘wilt-sick’ black cotton soils around Udamalpet (Coimbatore District, Madras State), mainly following the techniques of the traditional Fusarium investigations of Wollenweber, Reinking and others1,2,3.
