A case for area-wide and integrated management of Botryosphaeriales in Australian horticultural crops
Australasian Plant Pathology 48 (1), 19-24
Abstract: Botryosphaeriales affect a wide range of horticultural and forestry crops as well as plants in natural systems. However, the agronomic and economic significance of this group of fungi remains largely unquantified. The fact that most Botryosphaeriales are often referred to as endophytes or quiescent pathogens only capable of causing diseases due to environmental stimuli has constrained proactive management practices. Consequently, disease control frequently occurs in response to symptom expression. Gaps remain in our understanding of the biology and epidemiology of Botryosphaeriales and effective management practices to control species are still in the developmental stages. There is a need for a multi-disciplinary and cross-industry approach to address the gaps in knowledge.
