Sorghum and maize downy mildew (P. sorghi) reported in 44 countries and pearl millet downy mildew (Sclerospora graminicola) reported in 51 countries around the globe are found in most tropical and subtropical regions (4,5). These oomycetes are both seed and soil-borne pathogens, thus rendering crop rotation less effective in controlling the disease. A sudden re-emergence and disease outbreak.
Sclerospora was subsequently elevated to the status of genus by 43), thereby changing the specific name of PMDM to Sclerospora graminicola (Sacc.) Schroet. Downy mildew infection of sorghum was first observed in India by 31), who considered it to be S. graminicola.
Abstract Native endophytic actinomycetes isolated from pearl millet roots were examined for their efficacy to protect pearl millet against downy mildew. Nineteen of 39 isolates were found to be.
Bremia graminicola (Chromista, Peronosporales) is a common downy mildew pathogen of Arthraxon spp. (Poaceae) in Central to East Asia and the only species of Bremia parasitic on grasses. Despite.
Sclerospora graminicola, the downy mildew pathogen of pearl millet, is an oomycetous obligate parasite which reproduces by both sexual and asexual means. Fertility and mating type frequencies were.
Classification and detection of Peronosclerospora species on the basis of DNA southern hybridization and the PCR reaction.. (Sclerospora graminicola (Sacc.) Schroet.) of bajra and jowar. (1970). Observations on the effect of host nutrition and seed, soil and foliar treatments on the incidence of downy mildews. I. A preliminary report. (1978). Oospores of Sclerospora sorghi in soils of South.
Kuchko (1985) obtained somatic hybrid of wild and cultivated potatoes (S. tuberosum and E. chacoense) and succeeded in the induction of organogenesis.The somatic hybrid plant inherited many characters viz., intermediate leaf morphology, stomata, forms and color of tubers, prolonged flowering, large and fertile pollen grains, high yield, resistance against Y-virus.
Sclerospora graminicola. In the same year Ito (1913) discussing the variability of different parasitic fungi in Japan, concluded that the genus Sclerospora should be separated into two different genera. He suggested the names Eusclerospora for those which produce conidia germinating by zoospores, and Peronosclerospora for the others, where the conidia germinate by means of hyphae. This latter.
