First report of Fusarium acuminatum on pigeonpea in India
Plant Disease 98 (1), 159-159
Abstract: Between 2010 and 2012, pigeonpeas (Cajanus cajan) grown in India were observed with symptoms of chlorosis, drooping and rolling of the leaves, followed by rapid mortality of the plants. The disease incidence was 20 to 60%. The fungus Fusarium acuminatum 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.
