Abstract

Data from inoculations of whole, shelled peanuts from 165 Florida breeding lines with conidia from three isolates of the Aspergiius flavus group (N.R.R.L. 3794, N.R.R.L. 2999, and one Florida isolate) revealed statistically significant differences in tolerance to Colonization by the fungus. If seed coats were punctured with a needle or abraded with carborundum before inoculation there were no significant differences in tolerance among the lines.
