Characterization of an organism similar to mycoplasma-like organisms in courgette in Liguria



Characterization of an organism similar to mycoplasma-like organisms in courgette in Liguria



Informatore Fitopatologico 45(2): 61-64



In 1993, a syndrome consisting of diffuse yellowing, and malformation of leaves, flowers and fruits was observed in courgettes grown in the area of Sarzana, La Spezia, Italy. The disease reached an incidence of 10% at the end of the season. Typical phytoplasma bodies were found in ultrathin sections of tissues of field-infected plants. The disease was experimentally reproduced by grafting infected tissues onto healthy courgette plants.
