Abstract

Soil-Borne Plant Pathogens Associated to Decline of Grapevine Grown in Greenhouse

The purpose of the study was to determine which fungal species were associated with a decline in greenhouse grown grapevine (“Fujiminori”). Two species of fungi, characterized as soil-borne plant pathogens were isolated from roots. The fungi were identified by DNA sequencing methods and by their morphology. The fungi were identified as Cylindrocarpon destructans (FJMB2) and Fusarium Oxysporum (FJBM3) according to the DNA sequences and similarities after BLAST search.

Keywords: Cylindrocarpon; Fusarium; Grapevine; Soil pathogen
