white rot stem wilting of some lodging plants, and ear rot
by a red fungus (Figure 2C, D, E).
The yield losses were even more serious when the nematode was found associated with yellow ear rot
causing bacterium on wheat (Maqbool, 1988).
Various types of diseases are found in maize such as Aspergillus ear rot
, Gibberella ear rot
and Diplodia ear rot
caused by different types of microorganisms.
Corn ear rot
has been the most important disease of the world.
The lines derived from D539, V-537C, VS-536, LT155, LT154 and CABG had better performance for grain yield and also showed earlier maturity, lower plant height and, with the exception of the lines derived from V-537C, better plant and ear aspect and lower percentage of ears with bad husk cover and ear rot
, in relation to the normal lines.
"Within them, you'll see resistance to threats such as Fusarium ear rot
, anthracnose stalk rot, and corn rootworm."
353-361, the estimates of heritability for fumonisin concentration and Fusarium ear rot
in the NC300 x B104 recombinant inbred population were computed incorrectly.
Fumonisins are produced by the corn ear rot
fungus Fusarium verticillioides, which is one of the most common pathogens of corn worldwide.
Fusarium ear rot
(FER) disease in maize reduces grain quality and yield to an appreciable extent.
The results suggest that treatment of maize seeds with essential oils from India clove, cinnamon, and thyme, at the concentration of 0.1%, mighty play an important role in the control of stem and ear rot
Germplasm lines were visually selected on the basis of resistance to a mixture of foliar diseases, resistance to Fusarium ear rot
[caused by Fusarium verticillioides (Sacc.) Nirenberg (synonym F.
"We've been evaluating for resistance to a host of disease pathogens, including fusarium ear rot
, grey leaf spot, southern leaf blight, and aflatoxin-producing Aspergillus flavus," says Carson.
