To clarify the biological characteristics and sensitivity to different fungicides, the effects of different culture condition on the mycelial growth of Bipolaris bicolor were determined. The inhibitory activity of ten fungicides on B. bicolor were also studied. The optimum temperature and pH for the mycelial growth was 25-30 ℃ and pH 6-7, respectively. PSA and CMA medium were the appropriate medium for hyphal growth. Continuous darkness condition and the alternation of light and darkness were beneficial to mycelial growth. Effects for carbon and nitrogen sources on mycelial growth were significantly different, and the optimal carbon and nitrogen source was dextrose and peptone, respectively. The lethal temperature of mycelia was 45 ℃. The toxicity test showed that 250 g/L difenoconazole EC had the highest inhibitory activity with EC50 of 0.0233 mg/L among all fungicides, followed by 250 g/L pyraclostrobin SC, 20% imazalil EW and 50% cyprodinil WDG.
