Agricultural Pathogenic Soil Fungus

On July 11, 2019, we received a Laboratory Request from a Chemical Company that needed a Microbiology Laboratory for anti-fungal testing a chemical against the agriculturally important soil fungus Fusarium oxysporum.

Fusarium is a ascomycete “sac” fungus that is ubiquitous in soil.  Although relatively harmless in soil,  in agricultural settings such as farm , Fusarium maybe very pathogenic to plants.

In addition to being pathogenic to plants, Fusarium species cause a broad spectrum of infections in humans. These infections in human maybe superficial, locally invasive, and disseminated infections.
