Phyllody is a destructive disease of sesame in Turkey. The disease has been causing significant economic losses by stunting the plants and altering their floral parts into leafy structures with no capsule and hence no seeds in sesame fields of the country. This research was undertaken to examine symptomatology, etiology, taxonomy and transmission of two(More)
Phyllody, a destructive and economically important disease worldwide caused by phytoplasma infections, is characterized by the abnormal development of floral structures into stunted leafy parts and contributes to serious losses in crop plants, including sesame (Sesamum indicum L.). Accurate identification, differentiation, and quantification of(More)
Sclerotinia blight, caused by soil-borne fungus Sclerotinia minor Jagger, is one of the destructive diseases in groundnut. Pathogen affected plants usually displays lesions, wilt and collapse which cause high yield losses. Traditional field screening is time and resources consuming. Molecular markers associated with resistance genes offer an alternative(More)
Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is an important crop cultivated in over 100 countries in the world. The rust disease of groundnut, caused by Puccinia arachidis Speg., can cause significant yield losses in tropical and subtropical areas. The disease affects not only seed yield but also fodder yield and quality. There are chemicals available to control rust;(More)
Phyllody is one of the most destructive diseases of sesame and causes serious yield losses worldwide. The present research was conducted to identify phyllody resistant genotypes in sesame. A total of 542 sesame genotypes were screened for the disease resistance in the field using a disease incidence scale of 1–5 in the year 2012. Three hundred four(More)
