The sclerotium rot of onion (Allium cepa L.) was occurred sporadically in the farmer`s fields at Daehap, Changnyeong in Korea. The typical symptom was water-soaking on the bulb, stem and leaves and then rotting, wilting, blighting and the infected plants eventually were rotted and died. The sclerotia were globoid, 1-3 mm, and white to brown. The optimum temperature for mycelial growth and sclerotial formation on PDA was 30℃. The hyphal width was 4-9 ?m. The typical clamp connections were observed in the hyphae of the fungus grown on PDA. On the basis of mycological characteristics, ITS rDNA sequence analysis, and pathogenicity, this fungus was identified as Sclerotium rolfsii Saccardo. To our knowledges, this is the first report of sclerotium rot on onion caused by S. rolfsii in Korea.
Key Words: Allium cepa, Onion, Sclerotium rolfsii, Sclerotium rot
