Basal and upper stem rot of oil palm is caused by the agaricomycete Ganoderma boninense. This study investigated the transmission of basal stem rot from Ganoderma-infected oil palm stumps to young oil palm seedlings. Low seedling mortalities (2.5%) were observed in a field trial after 24 months, but G. boninense could be detected in the rachis, bole and roots of a significant proportion of seedlings that were outwardly healthy. A high level of genetic heterogeneity amongst G. boninense isolates… CONTINUE READING
