Abstract : Maleic hydrazide (MH), which is an inhibition reagent for plant growth, is used for growing tobacco and tomato bud and preventing the budding and putrefaction of onions and potatoes during the preservation, but its effects on mycelia are not clear. Nishida and Okano have recently reported on tobacco anthrax germs, hip-disease germs, white silk disease germ and epidemic disease germs that MH inhibited the germ growth in culture media or affected the nutritional intake and MH treated tobacco sapling increased the resistance against anthrax disease and hip disease. In this paper, the effects of MH on growth of various plant disease germs are reported. (Author)
