This study examined cross-pathogenicity of the soilborne pathogen Verticillium dahliae between potato and sunflower. Four week-old potato and sunflower seedlings were inoculated with ten isolates from each of the two host species. Potato cultivars (Kennebec, susceptible, and Ranger Russet, moderately resistant) and sunflower hybrids (IS8048, susceptible, and 6946, moderately resistant) were assessed for disease severity and percent infection at 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks, and 6 weeks… CONTINUE READING
