Hendersonula dieback of mango in Niger

Hendersonula dieback of mango in Niger

Plant Disease 71(11): 1045

Since the early 1980s, a dieback disease has caused severe damage on mango trees in the Republic of Niger. The fungus most commonly isolated was H. toruloidea a facultative, wound-invading pathogen with a broad host range. Symptoms, which develop only during periods of high RH and high day and night temp. include sudden wilting of young shoots, twigs, or whole branches. Leaves turn bright red-brown but do not fall off. Cankers develop on infected branches and exude clear drops of gum.
