> the sphere of Deuteromycetous fungi causing diseases of agricultural
> plants, especially cereals, in Uzbekistan. We have been working on the
> organization of "Central Asian Regional Culture Collection of
> Microorganisms from Plants". We have found that tan spot of wheat cau-
> sed by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis was one of the main diseases in
> some regions of Uzbekistan and pure cultures of the pathogen have been
> established. Pathogenicity of 27 isolates to wheat was proved by
> artificial inoculation.Our present activity is concerned the
> determination of structure of pathogen's populations in Uzbekistan and
> the development of methods for wheat screening for resistance to this
> disease. We have tested 18 media for getting of profuse inoculum
> production of P.tritici-repentis and abundant conidiation has been
> provided on two media containing casein hydrolyzate,yeast extract,
> lactose and some other chemicals.
> In this connection we ask you for to help us with establishing
> contacts with U.S. scientists in our field of scientific interests.
