MetadataShow full item record
Fusarium algeriense Laraba & O’Donnell has been recently described as a novel crown rot pathogen of wheat within F. burgessii species complex (Laraba et al. 2017). To our knowledge, there are no reports of the existence of this pathogen outside of Algeria. In June 2017, 14 fields in Ismailli and Oguz provinces, Azerbaijan, were surveyed. Diseased wheat plants exhibiting symptoms of crown rot including brown discoloration on the first two or three internodes of the stem were collected before maturity, at maturity, and/or after harvest.
