Abstract:
Leaf drop of lettuce is caused by the plant pathogenic fungi Sclerotinia minor and S. sclerotiorum. Cool and moist environmental conditions favor disease development. Sixteen diffirent cultivars of head lettuce were evaluated in the field for susceptibility to Sclerotinia leaf drop in plots inoculated with sclerotia of Sclerotinia minor or S. sclerotiorum. Significant differences were detected among the tested cultivars in the amount of lettuce plants killed by Sclerotinia minor. On the other hand, there were no significant differences among tested cultivars in the number of plants destroyed by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum
