First report of leaf blight caused by Phoma exigua on Acroptilon repens in Turkey
Plant Disease 87 (12), 1540-1540
Abstract: During 2002, Acroptilon repens (Russian knapweed) plants growing in Turkey were observed with symptoms of wilting and irregular, charcoal-colored, necrotic lesions. The fungus Phoma exigua was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and ITS sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
