Response of mycoplasma like organism infected pritchardia trachycarpus fortunei and veitchia merrilli palms to oxytetracycline



Response of mycoplasma like organism infected pritchardia trachycarpus fortunei and veitchia merrilli palms to oxytetracycline



Plant Disease Reporter 61(3): 154-158



Mycoplasmalike organism (MLO)-infected P. thurstonii, P. pacifica and Trachycarpus fortunei palms declining in active lethal yellowing foci in Florida [USA] responded to therapeutic injections of aqueous oxytetracycline-HCl (OTC) by producing symptom-free fronds and inflorescences within 3 mo. of treatment. Declining MLO-infected V. merrillii palms did not respond to OTC treatment; however, healthy V. merrillii preventively treated with OTC at 3-mo. intervals had a significantly lower level of disease incidence over a 2 yr period. These and other data support the hypothesis that the pathogens for these diseases are the MLO associated with lethal yellowing in coconut palm.
