Host specificity of pigeonpea wilt pathogen, Fusarium udum uri icon


  • Of 30 weed spp. collected, 10 yielded F. isolates but none of these was F. udum and none of the spp. tested showed wilt symptoms. None of the 21 crop plants tested in wilt-sick pots and plots developed wilt but leaf drying and defoliation were observed on a few cotton plants in the plots. A pathogenic form of F. udum was isolated from the roots of such plants but these results have not yet been confirmed under field conditions
