Survival of Microsclerotia of Calonectria pseudonaviculata and C. henricotiae Exposed to Sanitizers

N. Shishkoff

January 2016


Boxwood blight is caused by Calonectria pseudonaviculata and C. henricotiae. Discrete microsclerotia of C. pseudonaviculata from culture were treated with eight commercially available sanitizers (ZeroTol 2.0, Oxidate, Sanidate, X3, Greenshield, Lysol Concentrate, ethanol, and sodium hypochlorite) to determine effective methods of disinfestation of nursery beds and benches. The most effective were used to compare efficacy against microsclerotia of both Calonectria species.
