Abstract:
Prunus nepalensis is grown as a fruit crop in Northeast India. Severe leaf blight was observed on almost 40% of seedlings grown in a polyhouse in Meghalaya, India. Light and scanning electron microscopy revealed the presence of Cladosporium oxysporum, which was confirmed by a pathogenicity test. To our knowledge this is the first report of leaf blight on P. nepalensis caused by C. oxysporum in India.
