First report of leaf spot disease caused by Epicoccum nigrum on Lablab purpureus in India
Plant Disease 98 (2), 284-284
Abstract: During 2010, Lablab purpureus plants grown in India were observed with symptoms of small necrotic spots on the upper leaf surface. The fungus Epicoccum nigrum 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.
