Teakle, D.S. (1956) Technical notes. A lucerne root rot caused by Pythium myriotylum. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 13 (4). pp. 241-243.



Each of three isolates of P. myriotylitm proved virulently pathogenic to lucerne seedlings under the conditions of the test. The stems and leaves of inoculated plants became shrivelled, wilted and curled. The most practicable way of reducing losses from root rot caused by Pythimn niyriotylimi appears to be to correct unsatisfactory cultural conditions as far as possible.
