Wilkinson, C., Shearer, B., Holmes, J., Tynan, K., Dell, B., McComb, J., Maroudas, J. and Hardy, G. (1999) A comparison of the in vitro and in planta responses of Phytophthora cinnamomi isolates to phosphite.

Research in plant pathology often relies on testing interactions between a fungicide and a pathogen in vitro and extrapolating from these results what may happen in planta. Likewise, results from glasshouse experiments are used to estimate what will happen if the fungicide is applied in the field. However, it is difficult to obtain conditions in vitro and in the glasshouse which reflect the conditions where the fungicide may eventually be used, in the field.
The aim of this paper is to compare results of the effect of phosphite on P. cinnamomi isolates in vitro and in planta.
