Effect of glyphosate on the growth and sporulation of several fungi species grown in vitro

Urszula Wachowska


Roundup herbicide tested in vitro showed fungistatic activity against Trichoderma hamatum, Rhizoctonia solani and Gliocladium roseum. The highest concentration of this herbicide in the medium reduced the growth of Microdochlum nivale colony, stimulating its plentiful sporulation at the same time. Under the same conditions, sporulation of Gliocladium roseum was inhibited and its conidiophors were deformed.
