Response of mycoplasmalike organism-infected Pritchardia, Trachycarpus, and Veitchia palms to oxytetracycline

Response of mycoplasmalike organism-infected Pritchardia, Trachycarpus, and Veitchia palms to oxytetracycline

Plant Disease Reporter 61(3): 154-158

Infected P. thurstonii, P. pacifica and T. fortunei palms, declining in active lethal yellowing foci in Fla., responded to therapeutic injections of aq. oxytetracycline-HCl by producing symptom-free fronds and inflorescences within 3 months of treatment. Declining, infected V. merrillii palms did not respond to the treatment; however, healthy V. merrillii, given a preventive treatment at 3-month intervals, had a significantly lower level of disease incidence over 2 yr.
