There are no reported cases of the Systemic products: Phosphorus acid (as potassium phosphonate) and metalaxyl have also been recommended and, in the Ivory Coast, a commercial injector is used to apply these products, and to manage epidemics of the disease. at this time. Causal organism: Phytophthora palmivora. Traditional crop plants of the Pacific Islands are plagued by a number of important diseases. Phytophthora bud rot is one of the more common dis eases encountered in palms in wet tropical climates. Impacts Alternative palm species to replace coconut in P. katsurae endemic areas are available. The Polynesian Tall and Rennell Tall are said to have good tolerance. To isolate the causal organism of soft rot of vegetables d,iseased samples of potato, tomato, carrot, chilies, and bell pepper, were analyzed in the lab, using nutrient agar (NA) and/or the enrichment host (Bell pepper) technique Bordeaux paste is made by mixing together 100 g copper sulphate with 100 g quick lime (calcium oxide), each dissolved in 500 ml water, and then mixed together. • In 1996, heavy incidence of bud rot disease was reported from Kuttiadi, in Kerala, leading to the destruction of thousands of coconut palms in that particular region. By the time symptoms appear, the disease is advanced with rotting of the bud and inner leaves (Photo 1). Plant palms at least 10 m apart; wide spacing allows air movement through the plantation, and reduces the times that leaves are wet and spores can infect. Bud rot incidence is high in palms growing in marshy, water-logging areas and in environments that promote high humidity (above 90%). Initial symptom is the characteristic change of spindle leaf colour from green to yellow and then brownish. coconut in Bangladesh [3-5]. At this stage, the rot has probably completely destroyed the The causal organism is Phytophthora palmivora, a soil-borne fungus in the water- mold group. A different species, Phytophthora katsurae, occurs in the Caribbean and West Africa. The disease is favoured by high humidity such as that which occurs in low, badly drained plantations with dense stands, and in areas of high rainfall. InEpidemiology of Phytophthoraon Cocoa in Nigeria WARD, M. R. & GRIFFIN, M. J. Phytophthora palmivora is an oomycete that causes bud-rot of palms, fruit-rot or kole-roga of coconut and areca nut. The production of oospores in infected tissues suggested survival of the pathogen in the heart (cabbage) or affected palms. The root (wilt) affected coconut are susceptible to diseases such as leaf rot and pests such as rhinoceros beetle and red palm weevil. Coconut bud rot may appear at any time of the year, but is found more commonly a month or two after periods of heavy rains. Samoan German Crop Protection Project, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) Gmbh, Germany. Photo 2. Until recent years the disease has not been a serious problem, but has re-emerged, particularly in the tri-state region of western Nebraska, northeast Colorado, and southeast Wyoming. Make sure the plantation has good drainage; good drainage lowers the humidity in the plantation and reduces leaf wetness, which is needed for spore germination. Since the affected part is the fruit, its incidence causes considerable loss in yield. The leaves rot and the growing bud rots causing death of the palm. Disease spread slowly, though persistently, by means of tappers, rhinoceros beetle and human agencies. It is one of the serious diseases of coconut and is fatal as the growing part of the plant is damaged. Android Edition Look for a wilt of the spear leaf, which bends over slightly. Mostly, the disease affects young palms, under 5 years. 36. Bud rot disease of coconut is characterised by withering, rotting of spindle leaf and foul smell. Phytophthora water moulds survive in the soil and plant debris, probably in a dormant state as thick-walled spores ("chlamydospores"); these germinate producing spores ("sporangia") that are spread by wind, wind-driven rain and possibly by insects (see Fact Sheet no.

About 59 identified species of Phytophthora are known as pathogens causing disease in roots, crowns, stems, leaves, and fruits of a wide range of agricultural plant species (Erwin and Ribeiro 1996). The disease is sporadic in nature in most of the places; however, outbreaks of epidemics are also common in certain areas. So, the information regarding the effect of different fungicides against P. palmarum, the causal organism of grey leaf spot of coconut is not enough which demand more investigation on it.
