Variations in hosting beneficial plant-associated microorganisms by root wilt-diseased and field-tolerant coconut palms of West Coast Tall variety



Variations in hosting beneficial plant-associated microorganisms by root wilt-diseased and field-tolerant coconut palms of West Coast Tall variety



Current Science 89(11): 1922-1927



Coconut (Cocos nucifera) in Kerala, India, are affected by root wilt, a debilitative disease caused by a phytoplasma, resulting in substantial yield loss. One of the strategies to combat this problem involves breeding for root wilt-resistant/tolerant palms by exploiting the genetics of disease escapees identified in the heavily diseased tracts.
