Pythium vexans causing patch canker of rubber trees on Hainan Island, China

Pythium vexans causing patch canker of rubber trees on Hainan Island, China This is the first report of patch canker disease of rubber trees (clone RRIM600) in China. It is characterized by discrete irregular patches of rotted, discolored bark and wood, accompanied by a decrease in latex flow. A total of seven isolates of Pythium vexans were obtained from the diseased bark of the trunks and roots of rubber trees. Inoculating these isolates into healthy, mature rubber trees resulted in symptoms similar to patch canker and the same fungal species was re-isolated from the diseased tissues. This is also the first record of Py. vexans in Hainan. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mycopathologia Springer Journals

Abstract

This is the first report of patch canker disease of rubber trees (clone RRIM600) in China. It is characterized by discrete irregular patches of rotted, discolored bark and wood, accompanied by a decrease in latex flow. A total of seven isolates of Pythium vexans were obtained from the diseased bark of the trunks and roots of rubber trees. Inoculating these isolates into healthy, mature rubber trees resulted in symptoms similar to patch canker and the same fungal species was re-isolated from the diseased tissues. This is also the first record of Py. vexans in Hainan.
