Surveying and collecting isolates of the fungus Exserhilum turcicum (Pass) Leonard and Suggs, the causal agent of Northern Corn Leaf Blight (NCLB), were conducted in two maize growing areas of Ethiopia in 2004 and used for studying cultural, morphological and pathogenicity varations. The results revealed that NCLB was widely distributed in almost all surveyed areas. Seventy isolates were studied for morphology and most of the conidia shapes were curved, spindle and elongated. The size of the… Expand
