Abstract

R. solani, The collar rot pathogen of coffee seedlings, penetrated the host tissue forming infection cushion and infection pegs. The fungal spread was both inter and intracellular. Among various tissues, epidermis and cortex were more vulnerable to fungal invasion. The establishment of the pathogen lead to the formation of sclerotia in the cortex. Distortion of the collar tissue and formation of cavities in the cortex was the common anomoly. The histochem. anal. of the infected collar tissues indicated redn. in insol. polysaccharides, starch, protein, and nucleic acid content. [on SciFinder(R)]
