Stinking rot of sugarcane

Stinking rot of sugarcane

Indian Jour Agric Sci 5(3): 387-392

The disease is characterized by wilting and drying of the leaves following a soft rot of the stem beginning at the top. It is accompanied by an offensive odor. The affected plants had been attacked by top shoot borers. 2 types of bacteria were isolated, one white and the other bluish on nutrient agar. The author was not able to induce the disease with either organism by introducing pure cultures into wounded tissue. Infection resulted only when the cultures were introduced into borer holes in the presence of dead tissue. Since the diseased tissue itself was found to be highly infective, proof of the pathogenicity of his cultures appears to be lucking. The blue culture is descr. and named Bacterium pyocyaneus saccharum (p.391).
