Assess the pathogenic potential of Fusarium avenaceum isolated from different hosts. Characterize the dynamics of Fusarium graminearum and Fusarium avenaceum interactions in root rot of pulses and FHB of durum wheat. Identify and characterize candidate virulence factors and mycotoxins of F. graminearum and F. avenaceum in root rot of pulses.
