The disease septoria tritici blotch of wheat is initiated by ascospores of the teleomorph Mycosphaerella graminicola or pycnidiospores of the anamorph Septoria tritici. We report for the first time the presence of the teleomorph, M. graminicola, in Denmark. With the objective of elucidating the importance of the teleomorph for the development of septoria(More)
Sclerotinia soft rot, caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, is a severe disease of cultivated carrots (Daucus carota ssp. sativus) in storage. It is not known whether Sclerotinia soft rot also affects wild carrots (D. carota ssp. carota), which hybridise and exchange genes, among them resistance genes, with the cultivated carrot. We investigated the(More)
A quantitative PCR method (qPCR) was developed for the detection and quantification of Ramularia beticola causing Ramularia leaf spot in sugar beet. R. beticola specific primers were designed based on the internal transcribed spacer region 2 (ITS2). The assay was applied on DNA extracted from spores trapped on tape from Burkard spore traps placed in an(More)
Field experiments, involving various fungicide strategies with pyraclostrobin and/or epoxiconazole were carried out in 2004 and 2005, with the overall purpose of monitoring the evolution of fungicide sensitivity in Mycosphaerella graminicola on different isolates per leaf, leaf levels at different points of time, and points in the field. Sensitivity was(More)
