First report of stem disease of soybean (Glycine max) caused by Diaporthe gulyae in North Dakota
Plant Disease 102 (1), 240-240
Abstract: During 2012, soybean plants (Glycine max) grown in North Dakota were observed with symptoms of reddish-brown stem cankers (~60 mm length). Incidence of infected stems was estimated in excess of 95% in parts of the field. The fungi Diaporthe caulivora (isolation frequency = 100% of stems) and Diaporthe gulyae (isolation frequency = 10% of stems) were recovered 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.
