The paper gives the results of a three-year field experiment connected
with the health of garlic bulbs in the vegetation period. Mycological
analysis showed that the bulbs are most often attacked by fungi. From the
infected bulbs 38 fungus species were isolated. Among these the commonest
genera were: Penicillium, Botrytis, and Fusarium, and
the species Helminthosporium allii. From Penicillium, P.
verrucosum var. cyclopium was the most frequently
identified species, from Botrytis, B. allii, and
from Fusarium, F. avenaceum var. anguioides.
Some differences in pathological symptoms were identified, depending on
the genus of the fungus and species domination.
