First report of verticillium wilt of melon caused by Verticillium dahliae in Tunisia
Plant Pathology 56 (4), 726-726
Abstract: Wilting melon plants (Cucumis melo) were observed in several greenhouses in the eastern part of central Tunisia, during 2006. Diseased plants exhibited leaf chlorosis followed by typical V-shaped marginal and interveinal yellowing, necrosis and dropping of leaves. A Verticillium species was consistently isolated from symptomatic stem vascular tissue and was identified as Verticillium dahliae on the basis of microsclerotium production. Pathogenicity of the isolates was confirmed by inoculation and re-isolation.
