FIRST REPORT OF POTATO WHITE MOLD CAUSEDÂ BY SCLEROTINIA SCLEROTIORUM IN CHINA
ABSTRACT: During plant diseases evaluation of Hangzhou, a city on south east of China, in September 2017, water-soakedÂ lesions were observed in lower parts of potato plants near the soil in a few fields. In addition, mature black sclerotia
were found inside dried out beige lesions. A number of sclerotia were sampled from infected fields and transferred toÂ laboratory. After assessment of myceliogenic and carpogenic germination as well as Kochâ€™s Postulates, the pathogen wasÂ identified as Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. To our knowledge, this is the first report of S. sclerotiorum on potato in China.
