  • Published 2005 in Netherlands Journal of Plant Pathology


The effects of plant development and leaf age on the infection efficiency (IE), the latency period (LP) and the sporulation intensity (SP) of groundnut rust were studied using detached and attached leaflets of a highly susceptible groundnut cultivar. The results indicate a decrease ofIE with increasing leaf age and an increase ofLP with increasing leaf age… (More)
