Maria Lodovica Gullino, Istituto di Patologia vegetale, UniversitÓ degli Studi di Torino, Italy. Maria Luisa Romano, and A. Garibaldi, Istituto di Patologia vegetale, UniversitÓ degli Studi di Torino, Italy. Plant Dis. 69:608-609. Accepted for publication 18 December 1984. Copyright 1985 The American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-69-608.

The agent responsible for a black fruit rot of strawberry in Italy was identified as Colletotrichum gloeosporioides. The influence of temperature and pH on the growth of the pathogen is reported. Among the fungicides tested, prochloraz, followed by captafol, chlorothalonil, captan, dichlofluanid, thiram, and tolclofos-methyl, gave the best results in vitro.
