Abstract

Black root rot is an important disease of strawberry caused by a complex of fungi that includes species of Rhizoctonia. In this study, a modified MIDI method (Microbial Identification System) was investigated for its utility to differentiate isolates of the three different anastomosis groups (AGs) of binucleate Rhizoctonia spp., associated with strawberry black root rot complex representing AG-A, AG-G, and AG-I. A total of 11 fatty acids were detected, and the FAME profiles for isolates of the three different AGs of Rhizoctonia spp. varied quantitatively and qualitatively. Moreover, the modified MIDI method will be a useful discriminatory tool for fungal identification and classification of the AGs of binucleate Rhizoctonia spp. associated with strawberry black root rot complex.
