This studies were investigated the occurrence of sclerotinia rot at the crisphead lettuce field in Uiryeong-Gun, Gyeongsangnam-Do from January to May in 2003. Average incidence rates of sclerotinia rot on crisphead lettuce was up to 21.9% at the five plastic houses. A total of 140 isolates of Sclerotinia sp. were obtained from diseased leaves of crisphead lettuce. Among them, the fungi YR-1 was isolated, which showed highly virulent on the whole plant. the YR-1 was identified as Sclerotinia sclerotiorum based on the formation, color, shape and size of sclerotium and apothecium. For the pathogenicity test, the most suitable inoculum quantity of YR-1 strain was selected as the triturated mycelial suspension of A550=0.8, 40 ml showing disease incidence of 94%, and the symptom showed as same as at the fields, the leaves and stem had rotten and developed white downy mycelial at the diseased lesion on the leaves and stems, and produced black and irregular sclerotinia. This is the first report on the pathogenicity test using by triturated mycelial suspension-inoculum of the pathogen for the sclerotinia rot of crisphead lettuce.
Key Words: Crisphead lettuce, Pathogenicity test, Sclerotinia rot, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum
