Abstract
<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title> <jats:p> <jats:italic>Cladobotryum</jats:italic> spp. are responsible for cobweb disease of mushrooms. In two commercial and one experimental mushroom-growing room, <jats:italic>Cladobotryum</jats:italic> conidia were released into the air in direct response to physical disturbance of disease colonies during either crop watering or treatment by covering with salt to 10 mm. Conidia were detected using a Burkard spore trap or agar-based trap plates. A maximum concentration of ∼25,000 conidia m<jats:sup>−3</jats:sup> was recorded in a small (75-m<jats:sup>3</jats:sup>) experimental growing room in the hour following the salting of ...
