There may also be brown or black decay at the base or a scorched leaf. Cool weather can delay the onset of symptoms. Remove and destroy infected plants. Leaves and stems may rot, and foliage may distort or die on one side of stem. The bacterium moves from the leaf through the petiole and causes a dark-brown stem necrosis. Fusarium is spread in contaminated soil and infected cuttings and is favored by warm temperatures, high relative humidity, overwatering, and poor drainage. If you are growing an organic crop, you can use most of the products listed above. Plant Archives Vol. Both A. ritzemabosi and A. fragariae have wide host ranges and can infect many common ornamentals. stem tissues are typical. The two most common bacterial leaf spots are caused by species of Pseudomonas and Xanthomonas. Small black fruiting bodies may be seen in the lesions of some leaf spot fungi. The pathogens can be differentiated in a Diagnostic Lab by biochemical and physiological characters. Chrysanthemum x morifolium is an herbacious perennial which adds a pop of color to your garden when the leaves start to fall and the colder days start to come. Symptoms include a brown rot of ray florets the can extend into the receptacle. Bacterial leaf spots are very fast to develop due in part to the very short life cycle results in a population explosion in a few days. On many hosts leaf spotting caused by these bacteria can progress to cause a leaf rot and premature leaf fall, known as bacterial blight. Once environmental conditions become favorable for the bacteria, disease development and spread occurs. Flowers may be deformed and one-sided. BACTERIAL BLIGHT OF CHRYSANTHEMUM C. Wehlburg This disease was observed for the first time in New York State in 1950 and was re-ported in Florida in 1951, at which time chrysanthemum blight had also been found in North Carolina, Ohio, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania (1). Good sanitation is essential. Infected plant parts may be covered with gray to brown, powdery masses of spores. Leucanthemum and Argyranthemum are not susceptible to this disease.
