Morphological, Cultural and Pathogenicity Variation of Exserohilum turcicum (Pass) Leonard and Suggs Isolates in Maize

  title={Morphological, Cultural and Pathogenicity Variation of Exserohilum turcicum (Pass) Leonard and Suggs Isolates in Maize},
  author={Daniel Abebe and Narong Singburaudom},
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…

Collections, isolations, morphological study of Exserohilum turcicum and screening resistant varieties of corn to Northern Corn Leaf Blight disease.
Characteristics of the fungus found in this study were similar to Exserohilum turcicum (Pass.) Leonard and Suggs, the causal agent of Northern Corn Leaf Blight disease.
Characterisation and pathological variability of Exserohilum turcicum responsible for causing northern corn leaf blight ( NCLB ) disease in Malaysia
Aims: Corn is grown primarily for human consumption. It is considered as the second most important cereal crop after rice in Asia. Many diseases affect this crop due to planting of susceptible
Assessment of Maize (Z ea mays L.) Exserohium Turcicum (Pass.) Leonard and Sugg. Isolates on Different Culture Media in Tanzania
Isolates such as KHK10, KHK18, KHN17, KHn3, KMM18 (Kilimanjaro Region), MMU13 and MRI4 (Mbeya Region), INM8 (Iringa Region) and MMM18 from Morogoro Region significantly yielded more colony growth, conidial germination, sporulation and dry mycelia compared to the other isolates.
Detection of the race of Exserohilum turcicum [(Pass.) K.J. Leonard & Suggs] causing northern leaf blight diseases of corn in Turkey
8 different races of northern leaf blight, namely 0, 1, 2, 123, N, 1-N, 3 N, 12 N were found in Turkey and the most common races were identified as race 0 and race 1.
Pathogenic variability in Exserohilum turcicum and identification of resistant sources to turcicum leaf blight of maize (Zea mays L.)
Eight maize genotypes which possess resistance to turcicum leaf blight can be used successfully in developing high yielding early maturing varieties for high altitude temperate agro-ecologies and are found moderately resistant with disease grade ranged from 2.1-2.5.
Study of the host range of Northern Corn Leaf Blight disease and effect of Exserohilum turcicum toxin on sweet corn.
The isolate DI of Exserohilum turcicum (Pass.) Leonard S showed that in the corn group, the symptoms were spherical red-brown, water soaked lesions that enlarged into oblong grayish-black lesions and finally the leaves became blighted and died and the pathogen was identified.
Management of Turcicum leaf blight [Exserohilum turcicum (Pass.) Leonard Suggs] of maize (Zea mays L.) through integration of host resistance and fungicide at Bako, Western Ethiopia
This study contributes to integrated TLB management options, and to make a valid recommendation forTLB management strategy, the study should be repeated over years and locations where TLB of maize is of major economic importance.
Considerable variation was observed among the isolates for PDI, virulence index, lesion length and latent period, while least growth was observed on Yeast + PDA medium with some exceptions.
Review article TURCICUM LEAF BLIGHT OF MAIZE INCITED BY Exserohilum turcicum: A REVIEW
Globally maize (Zea mays L.) is the first and most important cereal crop gown under diversity of environments unmatched by any other crop, as expansion of maize to new areas and environment still
Efficacies of Some Fungicides and Antagonists in Controlling Northern Corn Leaf Blight Disease
Though the difenoconazole showed highest reduction percentages while mancozeb came second when applied at 3 or 7 d before pathogen inoculation, whereas disease reduction by both antagonists ranged from 62% to 70% which are lower than the chemical fungicides, anyhow there was no any statistical difference among the treatments.


Reaction of maize cultivars from Uganda to Exserohilum turcicum
Several disease variables were used to characterize the type and level of disease reactions of Ugandan maize cultivars to northern leaf blight, caused by Exserohilum turcicum, in 1989 seedling studies and in 1990 and 1991 field trials, indicating that rate-reducing resistance characterized resistance.
