  • Plant pathogenic phytoplasmas found in grasses in northern Australia have the potential to adversely affect sugarcane production. To begin assessment of this threat, the number of grass species with phytoplasmas, the identity of those phytoplasmas, and their relationship with disease symptoms were determined. Sugarcane with and without symptoms of yellow leaf syndrome was included in the surveys. Molecular methods were used to detect and characterize phytoplasmas in grass species exhibiting… CONTINUE READING
