This report describes the characterization by whole-genome sequencing of four PVY isolates with unique combinations of molecular and symptomatic characteristics. Three of these four isolates were of type PVYN:O (ID-1, OR-1, PN10A), including one of “type B”, which contains an extra recombination event in the 5′UTR/P1 cistron; the other (NE-11) represents a(More)
ABSTRACT Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) using three primer sets was used to characterize 211 Colletotrichum coccodes isolates from North America, 112 of which were assigned to six vegetative compatibility groups (VCGs) using nitrate nonutilizing (nit) mutants. These isolates clustered into five corresponding groups by unweighted pairgroup(More)
Alternaria solani Sorauer (Ellis), a foliar pathogen of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), was considered to be difficult to control, responsible for yield losses of up to 30% (24), until the registration of the first strobilurin fungicide, azoxystrobin (Quadris; Syngenta Crop Protection, Greensboro, NC), in 1999. Strobilurins belong to the group of chemicals(More)
The effect of plowing and deep-rip tillage, in combination with chemigation or shank injection of metam sodium, onVerticillium dahliae populations and disease development was assessed in two fields with differing soil types and potato rotations. Soil samples were collected on a geo-referenced basis at depths of 0 to 10 cm and 10 to 20 cm before tillage,(More)
North American isolates of Colletotrichum coccodes, representing six vegetative compatibility groups (NA-VCG), were used to study morphological and pathogenic variability. The objective was to determine if variability in conidial and microsclerotial size was related to pathogenicity. Significant differences were detected in length, width, and length/width(More)
Studies were performed to investigate factors affecting symptom expression of potato virus Y infection in three potato cultivars, Russet Norkotah, Shepody, and Red LaSoda. Quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) results revealed few differences in the relative virus titer among cultivars tested. Potato virus Y (PVY) titers developed as(More)
Tubers of several potato clones and cultivars were screened for susceptibility to infection by zoospores of Phytophthora erythroseptica (causal agent of pink rot) and mycelia of Pythium ultimum (causal agent of leak) over a three-year period, from 2003-2005. Incidence of infected tubers (%) and penetration of rot (mm) were the parameters used to determine(More)
Early blight, caused by Alternaria solani, is an economically important foliar disease of potato in several production areas of the United States. Few potato cultivars possess resistance to early blight; therefore, the application of fungicides is the primary means of achieving disease control. Previous work in our laboratory reported resistance to the(More)
