First report of southern blight on bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) caused by Sclerotium rolfsii in South Carolina
Plant Disease 92 (4), 656-656
Abstract: During 2007, bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) plants grown in South Carolina, USA were observed with symptoms of wilting and crown necrosis. The fungus Sclerotium rolfsii was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and PCR analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
