Validation of the Lipbalm Tube Assay for Evaluation of Fungicide Sensitivity in Field Isolates of Monilinia fructicola

A. Amiri, P. M. Brannen, and G. Schnabel

November 2009


Simple and rapid techniques for monitoring fungicide sensitivity of pathogen populations can be helpful to optimize spray programs. In this study, a lipbalm tube assay developed previously in our laboratory was investigated for shelf life duration, ability to differentiate M. fructicola from fungal contaminants, and ability to accurately determine the sensitivity offield isolates of Monilinia fructicola to sterol demethylation inhibitor (DMI), benzimidazole (BZI), and quinone outside inhibitor (QoI) fungicides.
