First report of wilt of Amygdalus communis caused by Verticillium dahliae in China
Plant Pathology 57 (4), 781-781
Abstract: Since 2001, Amygdalus communis (sweet almond) plants grown in Xinjiang, China were observed with symptoms of wilting of leaves and twigs and brownish discoloration of vascular tissues, resulting in plant death. The fungus Verticillium dahliae was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and ITS sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
