Cellulolytic activity of Sclerotium rolfsii and the influence of KH2PO4 and MgSO4.

`Cellulolysis rate' of a pathogenic fungus, Sclerotium rolfsii, was studied on filter paper discs. There was positive correlation between the growth of the fungus and weight loss of the filter paper. The weight loss caused by the fungus was influenced by phosphorus and magnesium content of the nutrient solution. It increased with increasing concentration of phosphorus and magnesium of the nutrient solution.

Keywords: cellulolysis rate, Sclerotium rolfsii, KEI2PO4, MgSO4
