Spatial distribution of Aphanomyces euteiches inoculum in a naturally infested pea field

Abstract : The main objective of the study was to describe the horizontal and vertical distribution of Aphanomyces root rot in a naturally infested pea field. Measurements of inoculum potential clearly indicated a horizontal distribution of inoculum among several foci in the field, these foci differing in size and disease intensity. A highly significant relationship was observed between disease severity on plants during the cropping season and soil inoculum potential. In terms of the vertical distribution of inoculum in the soil, detection was maximal at a depth of 10 to 40cm, but inoculum was detected down to a depth of 60cm. Generally, inoculum potential was lowest for the layers at depths of 0 to 10 and 50 to 60cm. Inoculum distribution and the value of the methodologies used are discussed in terms of possible use for epidemiology and disease forecasting.
