First report of Verticillium wilt of mango (Mangifera indica) caused by Verticillium dahliae in Italy
Plant Disease 98 (8), 1156-1156
Abstract: During 2009 and 2010, young mango trees (Mangifera indica) grown in Italy were observed with symptoms of gradual leaf yellowing, marginal browning, slow growth, and dieback on one side of the shoots. The dead leaves remained attached to infected branches and no defoliation was observed. The incidence of infected trees was about 25%. The fungus Verticillium dahliae 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.
