Spatiotemporal analyses of rhizopus rot progress in peach fruit inoculated with Rhizopus stolonifer



Spatiotemporal analyses of rhizopus rot progress in peach fruit inoculated with Rhizopus stolonifer



Plant Pathology 66(9): 1452-1462



Rhizopus rot, caused by Rhizopus stolonifer, is one of the main postharvest diseases in stone fruits, but there is little known about the processes of disease development during transport and postharvest storage. The objective of this study was to characterize temporal progress and spatial distribution of the disease in peach fruit. Rhizopus rot development was evaluated using two different fruit arrangements. Only one fruit of each arrangement was inoculated with a R.stolonifer spore suspension. Disease incidence and severity were assessed daily for all the fruit. Nonlinear models were fitted to the quantity of fruit and to the area of fruit that became infected over time and distance in relation to the source of inoculum. Disease-free fruit placed next to the artificially inoculated peaches showed disease symptoms due to pathogen dissemination by mycelial stolons. The disease incidence and severity progress rates varied from 0.33 to 0.53day(-1) and from 0.30 to 0.49day(-1), respectively. The spatial spread of the disease followed a dispersive wave pattern with increasing speed over time, but decreasing speed with disease severity. For disease severity y = 0.5, the velocity at day 3 varied from 0.14 to 0.32 fruit diameter day(-1), while it ranged from 0.38 to 1.46 fruit diameter day(-1) at day 12.
