Abstract The aim of the present experiment was to investigate the influence of silver nanoparticles on Fusarium culmorum (W.G. Smith) Sacc. (FC) spores. The silver nanoparticles were produced by the high-voltage arc discharge method. To test the effect of silver nanoparticles on FC spores, 3 parameters were tested. One of these parameters was the vegetative mycelial growth in 2 experiments. The first involved the growth of FC spores on potato dextrose agar (PDA) medium after contact with 0.12-10 ppm of silver nanoparticles, and the second the growth of spores after contact with 0.12-2.5 ppm solutions of silver, but with culturing on 3 types of media (PDA, nutrient-poor PDA, and agar) instead. The next parameter was the formation of spores after the mycelia were cultured. The last parameter was spore germination in a 2.5 ppm solution of silver nanoparticles. A significant reduction in mycelial growth was observed for spores incubated with silver nanoparticles. This relationship was dependent on the incubation time and type of growth medium, but did not depend significantly on the concentration of silver nanoparticles up to 2.5 ppm. The sporulation test showed that, relative to control samples, the number of spores formed by mycelia increased in the culture after contact with silver nanoparticles, especially on the nutrient-poor PDA medium. The 24 h incubation of FC spores with a 2.5 ppm solution of silver nanoparticles greatly reduced the number of germinating fragments and sprout length relative to the control.
