First report of orange rust of sugarcane caused by Puccinia kuehnii in Ivory Coast and Cameroon
Plant Disease 95 (3), 357-357
Abstract: During 2009 and 2010, sugarcane plants grown in Ivory Coast and Cameroon were observed with rust symptoms, apparently different from brown rust. The fungus Puccinia kuehnii was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and ITS sequence analysis. This raises the possibility that the introduction of this fungus into Florida originated from West Africa.
