They form a mono-phyletic clade to which Nalanthamala psidii and N. diospyri are related based on analyses of the internal transcribed spacer regions and 5.8S rDNA (ITS rDNA), LSU rDNA, and partial β-tubulin gene. Guava Wilt. The aim of this study was to seek resistant guava selections by means of in vitro screening of guava seedlings and subsequently testing the most promising selections in inoculation studies with N. psidii. First, the soil fungus caused guava wilt disease to a damaging effect. and N. vermoesenii originate from palm hosts, form mostly greenish or olive-brown colonies and white-to-salmon conidial masses.

Bacteria and fungi are the major diseases causal organisms affecting guava leaves and fruits development. has been considered as major pathogen. This fungus is the cause of a blight of ornamental palms in the United States and Belgium and its occurrence on guava is enigmatic. Although none of the selections showed complete resistance, selection MS44 showed some tolerance against the G2 isolate of the pathogen obtained from diseased ‘TS-G2’ trees, whilst selection MS70 showed some tolerance against the G1 isolate obtained from diseased TS-G1 trees. Wilt is the most important disease of guava. This paper gives an overview of guava, ‘Van Zyl’ and ‘Fan Retief’. Sparse foliage, yellowing of Guava plant leaves, and tree wilting are the symptoms. Investigation on wilt disease of guava (. of fungal origin, bacterial, algal and nematodes, are found to cause various type of disease. In South Africa.

Wilt is the most destructive disease for guava plant in India and losses due to this disease are substantial. The only way out is the varietal development those are resistant to diseases. The symptoms appear on the infected trees many months after roots have been attacked by the fungi. The lack of varieties resistant to GWD is a major concern. Some of the twigs become bare and fail to bring forth new leaves or flowers and eventually dry up. Oak wilt is a fungal caused by Bretziella fagacearum, is a disease originating in eastern Russia.

A total of 15 645 SSRs were identified consisting mostly of tri- and tertra- nucleotide motifs. Plant Disease 69:726. This treatment also seems to have a plant growth-enhancing effect apart from disease suppression. Wilt of guava from India was first reported in 1935 from Allahabad. Besides, about 42% of 270 ha from the area that have cultivate guava in Malaysia have affected by this disease. The fungus causing this disease, Myxosporium psidii, forms dry chains of co- nidia on surfaces of pseudoparenchymatous sporo- dochia, which develop in blisters on bark. STUDIES ON GUAVA WILT DISEASE . Guava wilt disease appeared soil borne and may spread through nursery stock grown in contaminated soil and resulting in disease transmission from diseased to clean orchards (Usman and Shah, 2013). Measures currently undertaken to address this new threat include screening of chemical and biological products against the GWD isolates as short term solution as well as further in vitro screening of thousands of seed for a long term solution. Guava wilt disease (GWD), caused by Nalanthamala psidii, is a serious disease occurring in the guava-producing areas of the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces of South Africa. Wilt is the most destructive disease for guava plant in India and losses due to this disease are substantial.

Guava wilt disease symptoms include wilting and yellowing or bronzing of the leaves, noticeable sagging, and the premature shedding of fruits. The guava (Psidium guajava L., Myrtaceae), is one of 150 species of Psidium most of which are fruit bearing trees native to tropical and subtropical America. Wilt of guava from India was first reported in 1935 from Allahabad. As a result of this disease the total hectarage of guavas in the southern Lowveld of Mpumalanga has decreased by 80 % in the period 1982 to 1994. Similar sporodochia are characteristic of Nalanthamala mad- reeya, the type species of Nalanthamala. Guava (Psidium guajava Linn.)
