Plant Disease 91 (8), 1053-1053
Abstract: Between 2004 and 2006, watermelon grown in Texas, USA were observed with symptoms of vine decline with leaf yellowing, wilting, and gradual death of the leaves. The fungus Verticillium dahliae was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
