Verticillium wilt incited by Verticillium dahliae in Lupinus polyphyllus in Italy
Plant Disease 91 (4), 459-459
Abstract: In several gardens in northern Italy, a new wilt of Lupinus polyphyllus (an ornamental) was observed during 2006 in 20 to 30% of the plants. Affected plants had brown vascular tissue, were stunted and developed yellow leaves. Verticillium dahliae was consistently isolated from symptomatic tissue. The identification was based on morphological characters and analysis of the ITS region of rDNA. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
