Abstract

Rhizoctonia colonized the root surfaces of different species of grassland plants to different extents, being more common on grasses than dicotyledons. No other fungi that were isolated by plating out root segments showed a statistically significant difference between host species. The Rhizoctonia isolate used had little, if any, effect on the growth of Lolium perenne and was not pathogenic, either in normal soil with increased levels of Rhizoctonia or under gnotobiotic conditions.
