First report of Sclerotinia blight of peanut caused by Sclerotinia minor in Arkansas
Plant Disease 98 (7), 1013-1013
Abstract: During 2013, Runner peanut (cv. FloRun 107) grown in Arkansas, U.S.A. were observed with symptoms of blighting and wilting. The stems had straw-colored lesions, with white fluffy mycelium and small (< 2.0 mm diam.), black, irregularly shaped sclerotia. The fungus Sclerotinia minor was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
