Fusarium spp. isolated from insect-infested, diseased Centaurea diffusa and Centaurea maculosa in Europe were assessed for pathogenicity to North American plants of their respective original hosts: either C. diffusa or C. maculosa. Of the ten isolates of Fusarium spp. isolated from diseased Centaurea spp. in the Caucasus region of Russia and eastern Europe, all caused one or more disease symptoms or reductions in fresh weight of North American accessions of their original host species. In three… CONTINUE READING
