Isolation and characterization of Erwinia piriflorinigrans causal agent flower necrosis of red poppy

In 2016, necrosis symptoms was observed on stem and flower of red poppy (Papaver rhoeas) in Hamadan province of Iran. Symptomatic samples were collected and suspicious bacterial agent was isolated on nutrient agar medium. The phenotypic features of the bacterial strains were characterized and some molecular traits were examined. The bacterial strains phenotypically showed a high ...

Rapid detection of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides using a loop-mediated isothermal amplification assay

Anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is an economic disease that affects soybean production worldwide. This study developed a rapid, sensitive method for the detection of C. gloeosporioides using a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay. By targeting a glutamine synthetase (GS) gene sequence, the GS-Cg-LAMP assay works most efficiently at 64°C and ...

Genetic analysis and molecular mapping of stripe rust resistance genes in Chinese native wheat (Triticum aestivum) Lankao 5

Lankao 5 is a common wheat (Triticum aestivum) landrace collected from Henan province, China, which exhibits a high level of resistance to stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis f.sp. tritici, ‘Pst’) in field trials over many years. To analysegenetic of resistance in Lankao 5, F1 and F2 progenies were obtained from a cross between wheat genotypes Lankao 5 and Chinese Spring (CS). ...

Cost of root disease on white clover growth in New Zealand dairy pastures

The cost to clover growth of soil-borne root disease was measured in ten New Zealand dairy pasture soils. The average increase clover growth (weight) after soil pasteurisation was 28.5 %, but ranged from a 64 % increase (Whataroa soil) to a decrease of 11.9 % (Ruakura soil). The economic cost of reduced clover growth was determined using the Farmax Dairy Pro decision support ...

Resolving confusions about jarrah dieback - don’t forget the plants

The name jarrah dieback has been used for two different disorders, leading to considerable confusion. It was coined in the 1940s to describe the sudden death of groups of jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) trees in south western Western Australia, which occurred on poorly drained sites, following exceptionally heavy rainfall. In the 1960s these sites were shown to be infested by ...
