Cornhusk as Substrate for Inoculum Production of Diplodia macrospora
Diplodia macrospora is a fungus causing leaf blight, ear rot and stalk rot in corn. For large-scale evaluation of resistance of corn lines to this pathogen, it is necessary to maintain an inoculums source for use in the laboratory. In this technology, cut and sterilized cornhusks are used as substrate in the culture of D. macrospora. Pure D. macrospora culture is obtained by incubating inoculated cornhusks for 7 months under continuous light at 25-30 ºC.
