Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "examine how variation in Neotyphodium-host associations influences black cut worm performance and susceptibility to the entomopathogenic nematode S. carpocapsae." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "a greenhouse experiment was conducted using mature grass and soil plugs (10.8 cm [centimeters] diam. [diameter] x 15 cm deep) extracted from field plots containing four commercially available tall fescue cultivars ('2nd Millennium', 'DaVinci', 'Plantation' and 'Kentucky 31') transplanted into plastic plots containing a sterilized sandy loam. Stem endophyte infection was determined after 6 weeks using immunoblot kits." Reports that "endophyte infection levels and ergot alkaloid concentrations varied significantly between tall fescue cultivars. Alkaloid concentrations varied between cultivars having similarly high levels of endophyte infection, but generally increased with endophyte infection level."
