First report of Colletotrichum gossypii var. cephalosporioides causing cotton ramulosis in Colombia.

Plant Disease 2016 Vol 100 No. 3 pp. 653;


During the 2012-13 growing seasons (August-February), ramulosis symptoms were observed in cotton crops in the Sinu Valley, Cordoba, Colombia. Cotton plants in the field exhibited star-shaped lesions, necrosis of apical meristems, over-sprouting of lateral buds (ramulosis) and stunting. The causal pathogen was identified as Colletotrichum gossypii based on cultural, morpholoical, genetic and pathogenicity analyses. This is thought to be the first report of C. gossypii affecting cotton crops in Colombia.
