Incidence and pathogenicity of Didymella americana on table beet in new york

Vaghefi, Niloofar ORCID: and Kikkert, Julie R. and Pethybridge, Sarah J. (2016) Incidence and pathogenicity of Didymella americana on table beet in new york. Plant Health Progress, 17. pp. 270-272.


New York is the second largest producer of table beet (Beta vulgaris ssp. vulgaris) in the United States. In 2015, a Didymella sp. was isolated from table beet fields across New York. Foliar symptoms included dark sunken spots, large necrotic patches with indefinite margins, and necrotic, round-to-oval lesions. The objective was to identify the Didymella sp. associated with table beet, and assess pathogenicity.
