Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study "regarding the detection of pathogens in seed samples of perennial ryegrass and tall fesuce" in Italy. Details methods and materials used in field studies and seed pathology studies. States that "disease symptoms were observed on different cultivars of Lolium perenne L., Poa pratensis L. and Festuca spp. during the growing season. From infected tissues some emibiotrophic fungi were isolated in vitro and their pathogenicity was demonstrated by fulfilling Koch's postulates...The observation of seed samples by naked eyes was used to detect the presence of impurity and macroscopic structures produced by pathogens...For the examination of endophytes (Neotyphodium spp.) seed lots of perennial ryegrass and tall fescue imported from other European countries, Japan and USA [United States of America] were examined with standard methods." Reports that "in Lolium perenne both Puccinia coronata Corda and Puccinia graminis Pers. have been found...In Poa pratensis were identified Puccinia striiformis West., P. graminis, Rhizoctonia spp. and Fusarium spp...With the application of seed health methods, 36 of 80 perennial ryegrass seed samples were found infected by N. lolii and in 20 of 70 tall fescue seed samples was found N. coenophialum." Concludes that "the data obtained in [the] investigations show that in Central Italy rusts can be considered as major diseases especially during the periods characterized by warm and humid climatic conditions."
