Investigations of the market diseases of cantaloups and honey dew and honey ball melons



Investigations of the market diseases of cantaloups and honey dew and honey ball melons



U S Dept Agric Tech Bull 573: 1-47



In an investigation of these diseases in the New York market, made between Aug. 1931 and Jan. 1936, the most important diseases were Fusarium rot, Rhizopus soft rot, Alternaria rot, Cladosporium rot, Phytophthora rot, charcoal rot (caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola), Diplodia rot and pink-mold rot (caused by Cephalethecium roseum). The symptoms of these diseases are descr. and illustrated, and their history and importance are discussed. Studies of the causal organisms are reported. The results of temp. studies dealing with the growth of the causal organism in culture, the development of the decay on melon, or both, are given. Suggestions are made for the control of the diseases. The results are also presented of studies on bacterial soft rot, anthracnose rot and blue-mold rot (caused by Penicillium spp.), all of which are of less importance than the group of diseases mentioned above. Brief mention is also made of several other market diseases of minor importance that were either observed on the market or have been reported in the literature.
