brownrot

Brown Rot of Potato
Why the concern?
This is a quarantine disease of potato that is listed in the EC Plant Health Directive and is notifiable
in the UK. Yield losses are mostly caused by tuber rotting and, in many warmer areas of the world,
it is one of the main limiting factors in potato production. The effect on our seed-potato industry
could be substantial, especially for exports, if the disease became established in the UK. Once
established...

Pitch canker, a disease that affects
many pine species, is caused by the
fungus Fusarium circinatum . This fun -
gus can also infect Douglas-fir, but
symptoms are usually limited to tip
dieback.
Most pines native to California are sus -
ceptible to pitch canker, but Monterey
pine, Pinus radiata , is the most widely
affected host. The most recent severe
outbreak of this disease in California
was in populations of native bishop

Screening Aid
The stem borers, Chilo spp. , are some of the most important pests
of cereal crops throughout Asia. Larvae cause serious damage to
rice, corn, sorghum, and sugar-cane by boring into the leaf funnels
during the seedling growth stage (causing “dead-heart”) and late\
r
by feeding on internal stem tissue and inflorescences during the
reproductive growth stage. Feeding by Chilo larvae can result in
significant reduction in yields...
