In latter periods of growth, the mycelium is an olive to dark green or black color [7]. Certain Cucurbita species are resistant to D. From native plants in Central Europe to cultivated crops worldwide: Black rot on watermelon xidymella as a large, expanding rot that starts at the blossom end of the fruit Fig. Disease incidence is determined for each pot, although normally all seedlings are infected Fig.


Spots may have gummy exudates at the center that eventually turn to a black rot. The pycnidia, whether on fruit, stem, or leaf, are closely spaced groups of the dark brown to black fruiting bodies, just large enough to be seen without a hand lens.

Gummy stem blight symptoms affect all above-ground vegetative difymella reproductive parts of cucurbits, including leaves, petioles, vines, stems, tendrils, pedicels, flowers, peduncles, fruit, and seed 5, Loop mediated isothermal amplification LAMP: Published online Aug Fungal and Culture Conditions Five D. Bacillus subtilis is available for use as a biological control agent against D.

When this pathogen infects the bryonoae of cucurbits it is called black rot [2]. Pathogenicity was tested with three isolates from watermelon and one from pumpkin on four 1-month-old plants per watermelon cvs.

The fruit of butternut squash, jack-o-lantern pumpkin, ornamental gourds, muskmelon, and greenhouse cucumber are the most susceptible 3,23,26, These results verified the potential field use of the LAMP assay.

Fruiting bodies form readily when diseased tissue is placed in a simple humidity chamber made from a moist paper towel and a self-sealing polyethylene bag and held overnight at ambient temperature and lighting. Dark mycelium bdyoniae fruiting bodies of Didymella bryoniae 3 days after culturing from a leaf spot on watermelon onto one-quarter-strength potato dextrose agar.
