After 13 days of infection of the sunflower inbred line 'FU', the zoosporangia and sporangiophores suspensions for 50 isolates were obtained by grouping all sporulated cotyledons in a small container and adding 1 ml of physiological water for each cotyledon (9g NaCl + 1L sterilized water).
Bioassay tests proved that pyrimorph has high antifungal activity in inhibiting the mycelium growth of Phytophthora infestans, Phytophthora capsici and Rhizoctonia solani and in inhibiting the zoosporangia germination of Pseudoperonospora cubensis[1].

After 13 days of infection of the sunflower inbred line 'FU', the zoosporangia and sporangiophores suspensions for 20 single zoosporangium isolates were obtained by grouping all sporulated cotyledons in a small container and adding 1 ml of physiological water for each cotyledon (9g NaCl+1L sterilized water).
Signs of viability included movement of free zoospores in the water or movement of zoospores inside the zoosporangia.
