Indirect evidence for sexual reproduction in Cercospora beticola populations from sugar beet

Groenewald, Marizeth; Linde, Celeste; Groenewald, Johannes Z.; Crous, Pedro W.


Cercospora beticola is the main causal agent of cercospora leaf spot on sugar beet and has a large negative impact on the yield and quality of sugar beet production worldwide. Previous studies have shown that both mating type idiomorphs of C. beticola are present in natural populations, suggesting that C. beticola is heterothallic and may be reproducing sexually. Cercospora beticola isolates are diverse in the morphology of their conidia, onset of disease symptoms and fungicide resistance. To...[Show more]
