The influence of various adjuvants on the growth of the mycoherbicide Chondrostereum purpureum (with relevance to its possible use against forest weeds) was studied under laboratory conditions. Of the adjuvants tested, glycerine, transfilm, soyabean and corn oil had no effect on fungal growth, while others inhibited it. It is concluded that viability and compatibility testing must be done before mycoherbicides can be used with these agents.
