formed after 20 days on PDA, whereas acervuli
formed within 10 days when autoclaved carnation leaves were added to the PDA.
It seems that environmental conditions, particularly the soil texture and the water table, for the development of the disease were more favorable in Sheikhupura compared to other districts and Moist weather favors the production of acervuli
