Plectosporium blight of monkshood caused by Plectosporium tabacinum
Journal of General Plant Pathology 77 (4), 266-268
Abstract: Severe blight of potted seedlings of monkshood caused by Plectosporium tabacinum was found in glasshouses in Kagawa Prefecture in southwest Japan in May 2001. Root rot and browning of stem bases were followed by wilting and yellowing of leaves, then blighting of leaves, flower buds and stems. A fungus was isolated from diseased plants and confirmed to cause the disease. The new disease was named "Plectosporium blight of monkshood".
