Four clonal lineages of Cephalosporium maydis, a soilborne vascular wilt pathogen that causes late wilt of maize, were differentiated previously with molecular markers. In Egypt, this fungus can cause significant losses in infected susceptible plants. In greenhouse tests of individual isolates we found that these lineages differ in their virulence toward a series of maize accessions commonly used in Egyptian maize breeding programs. We also determined the relative competitiveness of… CONTINUE READING
