Diversity of fungi occurring on savory (Satureja hortensis L.)

BEATA ZIMOWSKA

Abstract

Studies on the diversity of fungi colonizing and damaging selected plant parts were conducted in 2007–2009. They were performed on productive plantations of savory (Satureja hortensis L.) grouped in south-eastern Poland. Fungi were isolated from superficially disinfected roots, stems and leaves by means of a mineral medium. Fungi from Fusarium spp., Phoma spp. and Rhizoctonia solani were obtained from the roots and stem bases showing necrosis and tissue narrowing. Botrytis cinerea was obtained from the stems with the symptoms of necrosis, breaking and tissue disintegration. Key words: savory, Satureja hortensis, fungi, occurrence
