Abstract/Contents:"The discovery of fungi parasitizing the eriophyd mite vector of ryegrass mosaic virus introduces the possibility of biological control of this important disease. The prospect is especially attractive because two of the fungi identified, Hirsutella thompsonii and Verticillium lecanii are already in use as biological control agents on other crops. E. thompsonii had not been recorded in Britain previously. Mites bearing fungal growth were found on half of the 40 ryegrass swards examined, which were mainly at the Grassland Research Institute and in the vicinity, but included two swards up to 70 km from the Institute. Mite mortality at one site was 16%."
