Botrytis (grey mould) tor of strawberries (fig.1). The grey mould (arrowed A) developed to this extent within two days of picking during wet weather conditions and the strawberries were probably infected in the field. A second mould (arrowed B) probably Rhizopus is also developing.

 

Botrytis (plíseň šedá) na jahodách. Plíseň šedá (A) se vyvinula do těchto rozměrů během dvou dnů po sklizni během vlhkého počasí, jahody byly pravděpodobně napadeny již na poli. Druhá plíseň (B) pravděpodobně Rhizopus se také rozvinula (obr.1).
