Abstract:
Non-salt tolerant cultivars of rice, lettuce and radish as well as salt tolerant varieties of alfalfa, barley, and wheat were screened in the greenhouse and laboratory to determine if Labyrinthula terrestris, a new turfgrass pathogen, could infect plants other than turfgrasses. Wheat, barley and rice plants were infected, symptomatic and died. Radish and lettuce were infected but nonsymptomatic. Alfalfa was not infected and exhibited no symptoms. Results indicate that L. terrestris is capable of infecting and causing symptoms in plants other than cool season turfgrasses.
