AbstractThree isolates of the fungal pathogen Colletotrichum dematium var. truncata were obtained from soybean (Glycine max) during the 1975 growing season in central and southern Illinois and labeled Cd-1, Cd-2 and Cd-3. The three isolates produced curved conidia measuring between 17.8 to 23.3 µ long and 3.2 to 5.1 µ wide. Growth rate and spore production were variable among the three isolates with Cd-3 producing the most spores per cm2 of colony growth and Cd-2 producing the largest colony growth at 25° C. Isolate Cd-1, found to be tolerant to benomyl in vitro, showed a uniform radial-growth pattern on potato-dextrose agar amended with 1 to 350 µg/ml commercial benomyl, while isolates Cd-2 and Cd-3 showed a bimodal-type growth curve. Colletotrichum glycine and Coltetotrichum musae were sensitive to benomyl.
