These hybrids were evaluated at two locations for MSR and one location for FSR with artificial inoculation. Maize stalk rot complex is becoming a serious threat for maize growing areas of Nepal. Fusarium verticillioides isolates in South Africa thus presented a species highly diverse in toxigenicity, but not in virulence. Based on the inhibition of mycelial growth, the most toxic fungicide was tebuconazole with 50% effective concentrations (EC50) of <0.1 μg/ml and EC90 values of 0.9 μg/ml for both pathogens, while the least toxic fungicide was azoxystrobin with EC50 values of 0.7 and 0.5 μg/ml for F. subglutinans and F. temperatum, respectively, and EC90 values of >3,000 μg/ml for both pathogens. Among the biotic factors … were grouped into a single major cluster. At the end of the growing season, the most frequently isolated species Studies on certain aspects of chemical control of bacterial stalk rot disease of maize. Keywords: Bacterial stalk rot, Cultivars, Dickeya zeae, Maize management Recently, a high incidence of stalk rot disease has been reported in several maize fields in Gangwon province. The aim was to determine the occurrence and impact of different Fusarium species in order to assess the potential risk of mycotoxin contamination. Tropical and, grain sorghum in queensland and new south wales, aus, distribution, molecular identification an. : Allgemeine, landwirtschaftliche und technische Mikrobiologie, By clicking accept or continuing to use the site, you agree to the terms outlined in our. All figure content in this area was uploaded by Muhammad Riaz, All content in this area was uploaded by Muhammad Riaz on Jan 01, 2020, DISTRIBUTION OF STALK ROT OF MAIZE IN PUNJAB, PAKISTAN, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, University of the Punja, for year 2016-17 was 1334 thousand hectares, extensive survey to document the distribution of stalk, Disease severity index was calculated by applying following for. F. verticillioides was the species with the highest number of isolates followed by F. temperatum and then F. subglutinans. The stalk pith tissue of Diplodia-infected corn disintegrates similarly to both Gibberella and Fusarium stalk rots, but Diplodia-infected pith will not have any red or pink discoloration. The highest DI was recorded in Sialkot and Sahiwal. The bacterium prefers high temperature and moisture for their growth result is plant toppled down within week. SIMILARITIES TO OTHER DISEASES Pythium stalk rot (Pythium aphanidermatum) causes similar symptoms on maize, but bacterial stalk rot may be accompanied by a foul odour. Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Year-to-year variability observed for the incidence of F. graminearum can most likely be associated with differences in climatic conditions among the three years. The disease is more prevalent in rainy season in India. Post flowering stalk rot (PFSR) is one of the major biotic constraints to maize production in tropical and subtropical environments. This article is protected by copyright. In field screening, Margala, NRL-4, EV-1097 showed maximum resistance followed by moderately resistant SP-3, NCML-73, NC-2703, NRL-6 and Local-Y maize genotypes. Pathogenicity tests confirmed F. andiyazi and F. thapsinum were the dominant stalk rot pathogens, whilst F. thapsinum and species within the Fusarium incarnatum-F. equiseti species complex were most frequently associated with head blight. INTRODUCTION pathogens have been reported to cause stalk rot of Maize is the third largest planted crop after wheat and rice in the world (USDA 2014). should thus focus strongly on reducing fungal contamination of maize and the detoxification of grain with focus on using regionally adapted maize varieties. During this study, surveys were undertaken in three major sorghum producing regions in eastern Australia to assess the diversity and frequency of Fusarium species associated with stalk rot and head blight infected plants. Maize is a socioeconomically important crop in many countries. Diplodia is indicated by min - ute dark brown/black reproductive structures called pycnidia which are embedded in husks, the rind of stalks, or on kernel surfaces (Figure 7). zeae have economic importance of reduced crop yield up to 98.8%. All the F. verticillioides isolates produced FER symptoms, including isolates from roots and stems. Disease incidence varied from 41 to 51% in different districts. Susceptibility of maize germplasm to bacterial stalk rot caused by Erwinia chrysanthemi pv. Bacterial stalk rot of maize caused by Dickeya zeae previously known as E. chrysanthemi pv. Stalk rot in maize caused by Fusarium moniliforme has been a concern in majority of maize growing areas. to maize stalk rot were sampled at four different physiological stages. Significant difference was found in grain yield, plant height, ear height and ear weight while ear placement, ear per plant and infected ear data were non-significant. Screening of maize germs plas. Biocontrol agents associated with Stalk Rot of maize in North-East China, Pathogens associated with stalk rot of corn in Pakistan, Giberella fujikuroi species complex isolated from maize and wheat in Iran: distribution, molecular identification and fumonisin B 1 in vitro biosynthesis: Occurrence of fumonisin-producing Fusarium species in maize and wheat. As the season progressed, the incidence Object of my investigation is to explored PGPR bacteria that have Anti-fungal activities and identification of bacterial protein and metabolites with anti-fungal potential against Neocosmospora rub, Fungi were isolated from diseased maize samples suffering from stalk rot. The hybrids differed significantly for FSR (p < 0.05), as was the general combining ability (GCA) effects (p < 0.01), while Specific combining ability (SCA) effects were found to be non-significant.
