Effect of prothioconazole + fluoxastrobin (a), prothioconazole (b) and azoxystrobin (c) alone or in combination with catalase (d,e,f) on production of deoxynivalenol (DON) by F. graminearum. Conidia at a concentration of 106 conidia/ml were challenged with a tenfold dilution series of fluoxastrobin + prothioconazole, azoxystrobin and prothioconazole starting from 0.5 g/l + 0.5 g/l, 0.83 g/l and 0.67 g/l in absence (a,b,c) or presence (e,f,g) of 1000 U/ml catalase. DON content in the medium was determined using a competitive ELISA approach 48 h after start of the experiments. Each bar is the result of two pooled samples to reduce variance. The experiment was repeated twice in time of which one representative experiment is shown in the figure. Different letters above bars indicate significant differences after analysis with a Kruskall-Wallis and Mann-Whitney test with a sequential Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons.
