First report of boeremia blight caused by Boeremia exigua var. exigua on pyrethrum in Australia
Plant Disease 95 (11), 1478-1478
Abstract: During 2004 and 2006, pyrethrum (Tanacetum cinerariifolium) plants grown in Tasmania, Australia were observed with symptoms of necrotic lesions on stems and leaves. The fungus Boeremia exigua var. exigua was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and ITS sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
