Fusarium mangiferae associated with mango malformation in the Sultanate of Oman
European Journal of Plant Pathology 121 (2), 195-199
Abstract: Mango malformation, caused by Fusarium mangiferae, represents the most important floral disease of mango. The first symptoms of this disease were noticed in the beginning of 2005 in plantations at Sohar in the Sultanate of Oman. The affected inflorescences were abnormally enlarged and branched with heavy and dried-out panicles. Based on morphology and DNA-sequence data for the genes encoding translation elongation factor 1alpha and ß-tubulin, the pathogen associated with these symptoms was identified as F. mangiferae.
