Didymella glomeratacausing leaf blight on pistachio
TLDR
The pathogen was highly virulent on leaves of both pistachio cultivars and did not need injuries for infection, while the ability of different fungicides to inhibit the in vitro mycelial growth of the pathogen is presented. Expand
The Point Mutation G461S in the MfCYP51 Gene is Associated with Tebuconazole Resistance in Monilinia fructicola Populations in Brazil.
TLDR
This is the first report determining molecular mechanisms for DMI resistance identification for M. fructicola isolates from Brazil, and provides an important advancement for risk assessment of DMI fungicides used to manage brown rot of stone fruit. Expand
Community Structure of Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus in Major Almond-Producing Areas of California, United States.
TLDR
The results indicate that the structure of A. flavus and A. parasiticus communities in the soil and the proportion of toxigenic isolates vary across regions and years, which may help devise appropriate aflatoxin control strategies, including the use of atoxigenic isolated taxa adapted to the soil environments in each region. Expand
Comparison of macro-morphological and physiological methods for Monilinia species identification in Paraná State, Brazil
TLDR
It is concluded that the synoptic key cannot segregate isolates of Monilinia species from southern Brazil and that PCR with specific primers was the best approach. Expand
Comparison of the sensitivity of Monilinia fructicola isolates to tebuconazole in Brazil using three methods
TLDR
The results suggest that the build-up of fungicide resistance in Monilinia fructicola has been prevented by the use of anti-resistance strategies in the main peach production areas of Brazil; however, additional studies are required to demonstrate how resistance instability and fitness are affecting isolate sensitivity. Expand
Understanding the Process of Latent Infection of Canker-Causing Pathogens in Stone Fruit and Nut Crops in California.
TLDR
The overall results of LII demonstrated that species of Diplodia and Phomopsis were less important in population development of canker-causing pathogens at the latent phase, and the usefulness of this sensitive qPCR approach was demonstrated. Expand
Survey of the pathogen of Alternaria late blight reveals different levels of carboxamide fungicide resistance in the main pistachio producing regions of California
TLDR
The prevalence of specific molecular alterations (mutations) associated with carboxamide fungicide resistance was evaluated and cross-resistance patterns among different car boxamide fungicides were identified, leading to recommendations about combinations to avoid. Expand
Using Allele‐specific PCR for detecting multiple amino acid substitutions associated with SDHI resistance in Alternaria alternata causing Alternaria late blight in pistachio
TLDR
Five primer sets are designed to be used as an allele‐specific PCR assay (AS‐PCR) for the specific detection of five possible amino acid alterations associated with Alternaria alternata resistance to succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors used in California and Arizona pistachio orchards. Expand
