Evaluation of oilseed rape seed yield losses caused by Leptosphaeria biglobosa in central China
Phoma stem canker of oilseed rape (Brassica napus), caused by Leptosphaeria maculans/L. biglobosa is a globally important disease. Severe phoma stem canker symptoms have been observed on winter oilseed rape in China but ...
Identification of environmentally stable QTL for resistance against Leptosphaeria maculans in oilseed rape (Brassica napus)
Phoma stem canker, caused by Leptosphaeria maculans, is a disease of world-wide importance on oilseed rape (Brassica napus). Quantitative trait locus (QTL) mediated resistance against L. maculans in B. napus is considered ...
Differences in MAT gene distribution and expression between Rhynchosporium species on grasses
Leaf blotch is a globally important disease of barley crops and other grasses that is caused by at least five host-specialized species in the fungal genus Rhynchosporium. The pathogen R. commune (specialized to barley, ...
Can crop disease control cope with climate change?
Crop yields need to increase by at least 70% over the next 35 years in order to meet the global demands for food due to the increasing population and changing dietary preferences towards meat and dairy products in developing ...
Phoma stem canker disease on oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in China is caused by Leptosphaeria biglobosa ‘brassicae’
Phoma stem canker of oilseed rape (Brassica napus) is a globally important disease that is caused by the sibling ascomycete species Leptosphaeria maculans and L. biglobosa. Sixty fungal isolates obtained from oilseed rape ...
Factors contributing to the holistic control of strawberry powdery mildew
(Association of Applied Biologists, 2014-11)
Effector-triggered defence against apoplastic fungal pathogens
R gene-mediated host resistance against apoplastic fungal pathogens is not adequately explained by the terms pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP)-triggered immunity (PTI) or effector-triggered immunity (ETI). ...
Predicting timing of release of ascospores of Leptosphaeria spp. to improve control of phoma stem canker on oilseed rape in the UK
Phoma stem canker is an economically damaging disease of oilseed rape crops, causing an annual loss estimated at more than £87M in the UK at a price of £390/t. It is caused by two related pathogens: Leptosphaeria maculans ...
Leptosphaeria spp., phoma stem canker and potential spread of L. maculans on oilseed rape crops in China : Phoma stem canker on oilseed rape in China
In China, the incidence of phoma stem canker observed in pre-harvest surveys from 2005 to 2012 was greater on winter oilseed rape in provinces in central China (in May) than on spring oilseed rape in north China (in August). ...
Climate change increases risk of fusarium ear blight on wheat in central China
To estimate potential impact of climate change on wheat fusarium ear blight, simulated weather for the A1B climate change scenario was imported into a model for estimating fusarium ear blight in central China. In this work, ...
