Abstract

Didymella bryoniae (Auersw.) Rehm and Rhizoctonia solani Kühn cause some of the most destructive fungal plant diseases in the southern Pampas Region of Argentina. The gummy stem blight caused by D. bryoniae affects melon crops, damaging leaves and fruits (Fiori et al., 2000). R. solani is a well-known species complex which causes seedling death in several crops (Nicoletti et al., 1999).
