Phytophylactica The aim of this study was to seek resistant guava selections by means of in vitro screening of guava seedlings and subsequently testing the most promising selections in inoculation studies with N. psidii. Guava wilting disease in. Wilt is a pernicious disease of guava in India. In the current study, chemical and biological products as well as plant resistance activators were evaluated for control of GWD in shadehouse and glasshouse trials. The aim of this study was firstly to determine the identity of 18 new fungal isolates obtained from infected 'TS-G2' trees. Since, the disease is soil borne in nature, there are limitations in its control. Soil-borne vascular wilt pathogens cause among the most devastating plant diseases worldwide. The release of the 'TS-G2' rootstock by the ARC made it possible for the industry to re-establish guavas in areas affected with GWD and saved the guava industry in Mpumalanga and Limpopo from extinction.

In the current study, chemical and biological products as well as plant resistance activators were evaluated for control of GWD in … Another common causal organism affecting guava is algae, which is responsible for causing algal leaf spot in guava. In 2009, a renewed outbreak of GWD was reported, which also affected the resistant ‘TS-G2’ cultivar, placing the guava industry under threat again. 23:98. Guava (Psidium guajava Linn.) Sequence analysis established the identity of the new isolates to be identical to N. psidii reference strain (CBS 439.89) previously isolated in South Africa, but differed from N. psidii stains from Malaysia and Taiwan. Guava wilt disease appeared soil borne and may spread through nursery stock grown in contaminated soil and resulting in disease transmission from diseased to clean orchards (Usman and Shah, 2013). Effect of temperatur, Schoeman, M.H. Measures currently undertaken to address this new threat include screening of chemical and biological products against the GWD isolates as short term solution as well as further in vitro screening of thousands of seed for a long term solution.
