Abstract

Growth inhibitors of Claviceps fusiformis with culture filtrate of Fusarium chlamydosporum.

Abstract

F. chlamydosporum [F. fusarioides] colonizes sclerotia of the ergot fungus of Pennisetum americanum in the field, and in vitro its culture filtrate inhibited growth of C. fusiformis, causing browning of the cells and the formation of chlamydospores instead of normal mycelial growth and the formation of conidia.
