The global expansion of cultivation areas of Jatropha has contributed to the emergence of various diseases. Currently in Brazil, the occurrence of a new disease has been reported that not only reduces the productivity but also causes the death of Jatropha. This disease is associated with collar and root rot of plants. From morphological and phylogenetic studies (based on Internal Transcribed Spacers, β-tubulin and Translation Elongation Factor 1-α sequences), nine species of Botryosphaeriaceae… CONTINUE READING
