Abstract:

A method is proposed for the cultivation of certain facultative parasites in a liquid medium with forced aeration. It may be used for turning out a sufficient amount of standard infectious material, which in turn could be used by breeders for appraising the resistance of plant types to specific fungal diseases. Spore material obtained from mycelium of a submerged culture is homogeneous in its morphological features and does not lose its virulence.
