Small, humid pieces of cotton were put at the end of the leaflet petioles to maintain cells at maximum turgescence [ 22 ]. The non-aggressive form of the disease, although dramatic in appearance, does not usually bbotrytis yield significantly. Google cookies and technologies Google Analytics: The two evaluation experiments indicated that the optimum temperature for B. The resulting suspension of B.

Severe Outbreak of Chocolate Spot of Fava Bean, Caused by Botrytis fabae, in California

The mean size of conidia varied both in length and width. Infection fabas young pods leads to stunting and ovules may not develop. Such studies can improve our understanding of conditions required for epidemic onset, disease progress rate over time and eventual decline of epidemics; and could allow us to predict the initiation and potential severity of chocolate spot epidemics in the growing season. While chocolate spot of fava bean has been observed previously in various fbae of the state, this is the first documentation of this disease in California.


The role of leaf wetness, relative humidity, raining frequency and temperature on infectivity and subsequent botrytls of chocolate spot on faba bean has been inferred from field conditions [ 5 ], which are difficult to address interaction effects. Chocolate spot is an important disease of worldwide distribution, which causes high yield loss [ 67 ]. The information is depersonalized and is displayed as numbers, meaning it cannot be traced back to individuals.

Botrytis fabae – Wikipedia

Alternating wet and dry conditions may lead to spots with a series of concentric growth rings, however during longer periods of wet weather the fungus thrives and the leaf is killed. Go to distribution map Number and size of spores were counted and measured using the Malassez haemacytometer slide and micrometer under an optical microscope field of vision 10x eyepiece and 40x objectiverespectively.

The conidia btrytis liberated from dead or dying leaves and flowers, usually those that have fallen to the ground, and are spread to other plants in the vicinity by wind and splashes of water. Non-aggressive chocolate spot, which can be caused by either B. A damaging disease developed on commercial fava bean Vicia faba L. A spore suspension was prepared from 15 days-old cultures of the isolate. AUDPC was determined with the expansion of lesion sizes over time [ 29 ] as:.

Over the last century, however, there has been a steady reduction in the cultivated area of faba bean in many countries due to several reasons. Cookies on Plantwise Knowledge Bank Like most websites we use cookies.

This study has indicated differences in the effects of temperatures on mycelial growth, sporulation, conidial size, sclerotial formation and morphology of B. Click on the language titles to launch them.

Leaflets inoculated with distilled sterile water vabae as control. Germinated seedlings were thinned to four plants per pot. The current results indicated that temperature strongly influenced growth and sporulation of B.

Forty eight hours after inoculation, LS aggressively increased on leaflets at the first three temperature levels on both faba bean varieties.

Moreover, the effect of temperature and other factors on the development of a plant disease after infection depends on the specific host-pathogen combination.

Indeed, infected flowers and pods may abort. Infection and disease development were more severe on detached leaf than on the whole plants inoculated.
