Validation of the Lipbalm Tube Assay for Evaluation of Fungicide Sensitivity in Field Isolates of <i>Monilinia fructicola</i>

Fig. 2. Mycelial growth and colony morphology of Monilinia fructicola and common fungal contaminants (shown here, Alternaria alternata) of peach after 72 h at 22°C on PDA lipbalm disks as observed under a stereomicroscope (7.5×). Conidia of each isolate were collected using a sterile toothpick used to inoculate the inner circle of the respective agar disk.
