Abstract The response of sweetpotato to inoculation with the chlorotic leaf distortion (CLD) pathogen, Fusarium lateritium was investigated. Analyses included vine growth, canopy biomass, chlorophyll concentration, net photosynthetic rate and yield on CLD affected (CLD+) and CLD free (CLD‐) mericlones (clones derived from meristiem‐tip culture) of sweetpotato genotypes. Gentotype L82–527, showed delayed vine growth but overcame the delay in one of two sequential plantings while NC‐845, L85–237… Expand
Effects of Common Viruses on Yield and Quality of Beauregard Sweetpotato in Louisiana.
During cycles of vegetative propagation, sweetpotato accumulates viruses that are thought to contribute to decline in yield and quality of cultivars, but the effects of specific viruses, many ofExpand

TLDR
This listing covers the period May 1, 1997 through to June 30, 1997, which roughly corresponds with the British Mycological Society's Special Interest Committees. Expand

Histological evidence that Fusarium lateritium is an exopathogen on sweetpotato with chlorotic leaf distortion
TLDR
On plants affected with chlorotic leaf distortion, hyphae were observed on and within this mucilage on the apical meristem, leaf primordia, and young, folded leaves. Expand
Photosynthetic evaluation of sweetpotato germplasm.
TLDR
Despite significant photosynthesis variations among the genotypes, sweetpotato yield was influenced more by HI and storage root sink strength than by photosynthetic efficiency, so it may be possible to identify high-yielding PIs for potential use as industrial types in the United States. Expand
Premature Leaf Chlorosis in Cucumber Associated with High Starch Accumulation
TLDR
Electron micrographs of yellow leaves showed that plastids were filled with starch and that only traces of the thylakoid membrane structure remained, consistent with the hypothesis that this form of chlorosis is due to an accumulation of photosynthate in the source leaf and an overaccumulation of starch in the chloroplast.

Fusarium lateritium, causal agent of sweetpotato chlorotic leaf distortion.
TLDR
Fusarium lateritium was isolated from all symptomatic plants and many symptomless field-grown plants, but not from symptomless plants derived from meristem-tip culture (mericlones). Expand
Isolation of Fusarium lateritium from sweetpotato seed
TLDR
The data presented suggest that F. lateritium may be widespread in association with sweetpotato, and relatively high levels of contamination were found in seed as old as 10 yr. Expand

TLDR
Evidence that a copper enzyme, polyphenoloxidase (otherwise known as tyrosinase or catecholase), is localized in the chloroplasts of spinach beet (chard), Beta vu?garis is presented. Expand
