First report of Verticillium wilt caused by Verticillium dahliae on avocado trees in Greece
Plant Disease 98 (11), 1584-1584
Abstract: During 2013, avocado trees (Persea americana) grown in Greece were observed with symptoms of yellowing, leaf fall, twig and branch dieback and vascular tissue discoloration. In total 12 out of 530 trees were affected. The fungus Verticillium dahliae was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
