The Helminthosporium Foot-rot of Wheat, with Observations on the Occurrence of Saltation in the Genus
Keywords:Foot-rot, Wheat, fungus
One purpose of the present paper is to present the evidence on which the foregoing conclusion is based and certain facts concerning the morphology and parasitism of the fungus; but far transcending in interest the disease itself- which now appears to be one of much less alarming nature than was at first feared- is the fact that very striking phenomena of variability are found in this and related fungi. In the following pages, therefore, appear (I) an account of the Illinois foot-rot of wheat and its causal fungus; and (II) evidence and discussion of the occurrence of saltation within the genus Helminthosporium.
