Ninety-nine d postinoculation, leaves 7, 8, and 9 above the inoculation site were collected from FL 86-19 plants and at 107 d, leaves of the same position were collected from the other three cultivars for isolation and ELISA. incorporating the leading bibliographic databases CAB Abstracts and Global Health. Unfortunately, the original blueberry bush died ≈24 Oct. 2006, less than 9 months after excavation. Microbiol. & Kennedy, G.G. fastidiosa members, whereas strains isolated from purple-leafed plum, olive, peach, plum, sweet gum, maidenhair tree, crape myrtle, and another western redbud strain clustered with members of X. fastidiosa subsp. 83 60 61, Davis, M.J., French, W.J. All were positive by ELISA, but isolations were only successful from roots in the direct isolation and ELISA test from stem and root tissues of the original diseased blueberry plant. Eight ‘Premier’, eight ‘Powderblue’, and 10 ‘Southern Belle’ plants grown in 15.2-cm diameter pots were used for inoculation on 23 May, whereas 12 FL 86-19 were used for inoculation on 31 May. Blueberry necrotic ring blotch disorder and bacterial leaf scorch are new to Georgia’s blueberry crop, Phil Brannen, a plant pathologist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, said in a press release. 36 136 143. A BLAST search (Altschul et al., 1990) of two sequences indicated that the two blueberry strains are 99% similarity to the M12 strain of almond leaf scorch X. fastidiosa (C.J. These results provide a strong association of X. fastidiosa to the leaf-scorched blueberry plants. On blueberry, Xf causes bacterial leaf scorch (BLS), wh … Armillaria root rot of blueberry is caused by several species, including Armillaria mellea and Armillaria gallica. Bacterial leaf scorch of blueberry is caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa. Microbiol. Thin, yellow twigs or yellow stems became evident on some cultivars. Continuing to use www.cabdirect.org Bacterial leaf scorch (Xylella fastidiosa) is an exotic plant pest not present in Australia.Bacterial leaf scorch is a serious threat to Australia’s almond, macadamia and pecan industries. subsp. Once infected, plants often die within one to two growing seasons. While For instance, 41 d after the initial inoculation, when leaves 1, 3, and 5 above the inoculation site were tested, seven of eight (87.5%) were positive for bacterial isolation and four of eight (50%) were positive in ELISA tests for X. fastidiosa (Table 2). Each sample (1 g root or stem tissue) was surface-sterilized with a 0.8% sodium hypochlorite solution for 3 min followed by three rinses with sterilized water (5 min/rinse). Bacterial Leaf Scorch of Blueberry. Bacterial leaf scorch (BLS) of blueberry is one of the more recently described of the five different diseases of landscape and crop plants caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa and covered in … to save searches and organize your favorite content. In a separate experiment using nested PCR, Myers et al. The information presented here about diseases was developed from the publication A Pocket Guide to IPM Scouting in Highbush Blueberries by Annemiek Schilder, Rufus Isaacs, Eric Hanson and Bill Cline. Chang, unpublished data). The resulting sap suspension was streaked onto PW, CS20 (Chang and Walker, 1988), and XF-26 (Chang and Donaldson, 1993) plates for the direct isolation of X. fastidiosa. (2007) identified the four most abundant sharpshooter leafhoppers in the eastern Piedmont region and the northeastern Coastal Plain in North Carolina: Oncometopia orbona, Graphocephala versuta, Parahlepsius irroratus, and Agolliota constricta. Blueberry Root Diseases. There are Xylella subspecies, of which X. fastidiosa subsp. The diseased blueberry bush was then moved to a greenhouse and planted in a 30.5-cm diameter pot. The pathogen is spread by splashing rain, irrigation water, infested tools and equipment, and on contaminated cuttings or grafting stock. Management of this devastating disease is challenging and often requires early detection of the pathogen to reduce major loss. The results of the four isolations and ELISA tests (Table 2) clearly show that the bacterium moved rapidly in tissues of selection FL 86-19. The bacterial leaf scorch of blueberry caused by the bacterium Xyllela fastidiosa was documented for the first time in the state in 2011. It is essential that new plants not be propagated from Xylella infected plants. 2007 Pierce's disease of grapevines: Identification of the primary vectors in North Carolina Phytopathology 97 1440 1450, Raju, B.C., Wells, J.M., Nyland, G., Brlansky, R.H. & Lowe, S.K. This disease has been named “bacterial leaf scorch,” and it is caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa. By 3 months after initial inoculation, all eight X. fastidiosa-injected FL 86-19 plants showed symptoms, whereas all four PW medium-only-injected plants remained asymptomatic. Recently, a new disease has been identified in the Georgia blueberry production region. Recently, a new disease called bacterial leaf scorch of blueberry has been reported in Georgia and Florida. You can now claim your publications on CAB Direct with your ORCID iD! Bacterial leaf scorch (BLS) is caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa. (B) Symptoms (arrows) on ‘Powderblue’ injected with a stem-isolated strain (S1) observed 125 d postinoculation. After incubation at 28 °C for 4 weeks, the concentrations of cell suspensions for stem and root isolates used for 23 May and 31 May inoculations were 107 CCUs/mL and 108 CCUs/mL, respectively. Citation: HortScience horts 44, 2; 10.21273/HORTSCI.44.2.413. In the past 2 years, X. fastidiosa has become a major disease of southern highbush blueberries in Georgia and Florida (Brannen et al., 2007). Blueberry Scorch Virus. Leaf drop eventually occurred with young twigs or stems of the southern highbush selection FL 86-19 developing a yellow, “skeleton-like” appearance. This prompted the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests and isolations of Xylella fastidiosa, which is the causal … (B) Symptoms (arrow) of yellow stems and severe necrotic and degenerated leaves were recorded on FL 86-19 plant injected with a stem strain 190 d postinoculation. The reisolation and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) results on cultivars Premier, Powderblue, and Southern Belle. Once a plant is infected, symptoms may take 1 to 2 years or more to develop. in riparian hosts near northern California vineyards, : Cultivation in chemically defined medium, Bacterial leaf scorch of northern red oak: Isolation, cultivation, and pathogenicity of xylem-limited bacterium, from flowers and seeds collected from infected periwinkles, Axenic culture of the bacteria associated with phony disease of peach and plum leaf scald, Charcoal-yeast extract agar: Primary isolation medium for, strains isolated from landscape ornamentals in southern California, Pierce's disease of grapevines: Identification of the primary vectors in North Carolina, Plum leaf scald: Isolation, culture, and pathogenicity of the causal agent, detected in New Mexico in chitalpa, a common landscape ornamental plant, Blueberry production in Georgia: Historical overview and recent trends, Evaluation of a rapid ELISA test kit for detection of, gen. nov., sp. Recently; however, it has been associated with a decline of … It is most commonly seen in pin, red, shingle, bur, and white oaks, but can also affect elm, oak, sycamore, mulberry, sweetgum, sugar maple, and red maple. Bacterial leaf scorch, a new blueberry disease caused by Xylella fastidiosa. Two FL 86-19 plants started to show symptoms of marginal necrosis 54 days postinoculation, whereas one plant each of ‘Southern Belle’ and ‘Powderblue’ started to show symptoms of marginal necrosis 63 days postinoculation and ‘Premier’ stayed symptomless. Symptom development was closely observed and recorded on a weekly basis. No reports, however, specifically describe the aforementioned blueberry disease. Randall et al. Both ELISA and direct isolations confirmed the presence of X. fastidiosa in symptomatic plants. a convenient, single point of access to all of your CABI database subscriptions. A single diseased blueberry bush of the selection FL 89-16 was excavated from a blueberry farm in south Georgia on 2 Feb. 2006. 2006. Necrotic and discolored leaves continued to appear on the younger leaves along the branch (Fig. X. fastidiosa blueberry strains change the pH of the medium from acidic to basic during growth; this corresponds with a change in the color of the medium from yellow to red or pink when growth reaches the exponential or stationary phase, respectively. Blueberry Fungal Diseases. Bacteriol. The name of this virus comes from the symptoms which it provokes. 1A). This disease has been named “bacterial leaf scorch,” and it is caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa (Figure 1). ALGAL DISEASE Algal stem blotch Cephaleuros virescens Kunze ex Fries BACTERIAL DISEASES Bacterial canker Pseudomonas syringae van Hall Bacterial leaf scorch Xylella fastidiosa Wells et al. Botrytis Blight; Mitigating Mummy Berry Disease of Blueberry; Mummy Berry Disease of Blueberry; Blueberry Leaf Diseases. Furthermore, the source of inoculum for transmission would likely be available year-round. If you would like to, you can learn more about the cookies we use. (2007) concluded that X. fastidiosa is present in New Mexico and that the common landscape ornamental chitalpa is a host for X. fastidiosa based on positive results obtained from ELISA, PCR, and cultivation. Development of this disease usually occurs during mid to late summer when temperatures are high and rainfall is low. Description. The described symptoms on blueberry were similar to those exhibited on grapes with Pierce's disease and on plum with leaf scald disease. Scorch, caused by the blueberry scorch virus (BlScV) is a serious disease in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia) and New Jersey, where it is also known as Sheep Pen Hill disease. Does not persist year to year: Red variant of Blueberry Necrotic Ring Blotch 4. The CCU was used for the measurement of Spiroplasma citri cell populations in the pistil, sepal, corolla tube, stem, and petals of infected periwinkles (Chang and Zheng, 1999). Production is concentrated in the southern coastal flatwoods. Leaves show a mottling pattern and may be malformed or straplike (Fig. The crowns of infected blueberry plants have an internal mottled discoloration of light brown to silvery-purple blotches with ill-defined borders. 1993 Xylella fastidiosa: Cultivation in chemically defined medium Phytopathology 83 192 194, Chang, C.J. EUPHRESCO Secretariat 74 views Text - scientific article/review article Authors. More work, including repeating the comparison of the previously mentioned three cultivars plus other cultivars and selection FL 86-19, is necessary before a cultivar is considered resistant or tolerant to blueberry X. fastidiosa. Blueberry rust (Thekopsora minima) is a fungal disease which infects the leaves and fruit of blueberries and related plants in the Ericaceae plant family. nov: Gram-negative xylem-limited, fastidious plant bacteria related to Xanthomonas spp Intl. Bacterial Leaf Scorch Barbara J. Smith Research Plant Pathologist USDA-ARS Thad Cochran Southern Horticultural Laboratory Poplarville, MS 39470 January 17, 2013 Based primarily on Brannen, P.M., Krewer, G., Boland, B., Horton, D., Chang, C.J. This disease impacts certain shade trees resulting in uneven ‘scorching’ of leaf margins in late summer and early fall. Using a multiprimer polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system, random amplified polymorphic DNA–PCR, and sequence analysis of the 16S-23S rDNA intergenic spacer region, Hernandez-Martinez et al. On 12 Mar. Relative to total sales, blueberries are the number one fruit commodity in the state of Georgia, surpassing even peaches. Several new diseases such as necrotic ringspot caused by tobacco ring- spot virus and blueberry ringspot virus (Har- ald Scherm, personal communication) have appeared with the increased production of southern highbush cultivars. There seemed to be a different degree of susceptibility among the three cultivars and one selection with selection FL 86-19 clearly being the most susceptible consistent with what had been previously observed in the field. While Several new diseases such as necrotic ringspot caused by tobacco ringspot virus and blueberry ringspot virus (Harald Scherm, personal communication) have appeared with the increased production of southern highbush cultivars. The bacterium was detected 13 d before the first symptoms were recorded. (C) Much degenerated and necrotic symptoms (arrows) on the same FL 86-19 plant shown in B observed 73 d postinoculation. Bacterial leaf scorch (commonly abbreviated BLS, also called bacterial leaf spot) is a disease state affecting many crops, caused mainly by the xylem-plugging bacterium Xylella fastidiosa. V. amoenum; V. ashei]) or lowbush (V. angustifolium and V. myrtilloides) blueberry. There was no evidence of symptoms developing further in ‘Powderblue’ or ‘Southern Belle’ plants, even at 14 months after the initial observation. The sterilized tissues were macerated in 3 mL of PW broth (Davis et al., 1981) with a sterilized razor blade. When leaves 2, 4, and 6 above the inoculation site were used for isolations and ELISA tests conducted at 71 d postinoculation, both isolation and ELISA results were negative for ‘Premier’, one of six (17%) was positive for both isolation and ELISA in ‘Powderblue’ and two of eight (25%) were positive for isolation and one of eight (12.5%) was positive for ELISA for ‘Southern Belle’. Like most websites we use cookies. In 2007, blueberry X. fastidiosa was isolated from the following three diseased rabbiteye blueberry cultivars, Star, Palmetto, Ochlockonee, and one southern highbush Millennia (C.J. For the other three cultivars, only two of six ‘Powderblue’ and four of eight ‘Southern Belle’ showed mild symptoms, whereas zero of six ‘Premier’ plants were symptomatic even at 4 months postinoculation. The remaining three isolations and ELISA test sampling dates using leaves further away from the inoculation site showed a consistently high percentage recovery of the bacterium in isolation (62.5% to 75%) and in ELISA (62.5% to 87.5%) (Table 2). 91 329, Sanderlin, R.S. New developing shoots were usually abnormally thin with a reduced number of flower buds. Especially hard hit have been the mature pin oaks lining many urban streets. The protocols for isolations and ELISA tests for X. fastidiosa from inoculated plants were similar to those described previously, except the ratio of 1:3 (grams of tissue to milliliters of PW broth medium) was applied when sample weights were less than 1 g. Several isolations and ELISA tests were performed throughout the course of the study. Cultivar resistance of rabbiteye blueberry to the bacterial leaf scorch of blueberry has not been established. Bacterial leaf scorch on pin and red oaks is widespread and severe in eastern Pennsylvania and is known to be spreading westward. The overall decline of an affected tree can last for several years, but the tree will eventually die. ALGAL DISEASE Algal stem blotch Cephaleuros virescens Kunze ex Fries BACTERIAL DISEASES Bacterial canker Pseudomonas syringae van Hall Bacterial leaf scorch Xylella fastidiosa Wells et al. 1991 Evaluation of a rapid ELISA test kit for detection of Xylella fastidiosa in landscape trees Plant Dis. Bushes may be stunted (Fig. This prompted the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests and isolations of Xylella fastidiosa, which is the causal … Groups of 25 aphids transmit the virus 10% to 15% of the time. 92 175, Myers, A.L., Sutton, T.B., Abad, J.A. At the time, direct pathogenicity testing was still in progress. (2005) showed that Homalodisca coagulata was able to inoculate X. fastidiosa into dormant grapes, although field acquisition experiments did not result in transmission. By Karla Arboleda. The inoculation sites were marked with sticky tape. It was noticed, however, that the symptoms were similar to diseases caused by X. fastidiosa in other plants in south Georgia such as plum leaf scald (Raju et al., 1982; Wells et al., 1987) or pecan bacterial leaf scorch (Sanderlin and Heyderick-Alger, 2000). It has been reported only in Michigan and New Brunswick, Canada. BLS affects the vascular system, restricting the transportation of water within the infected plant. The first signs are necrotic leaves with browning and finally leaf drop. in the south of Georgia, USA. Bacterial wilt is a newly discovered disease of blueberry in Florida. Botrytis Blight; Mitigating Mummy Berry Disease of Blueberry; Mummy Berry Disease of Blueberry; Blueberry Leaf Diseases. Thirty-seven d postinoculation, leaves 1, 3, and 5 above the inoculation point were collected from each plant of the three cultivars (Premier, Powderblue, and Southern Belle). & Heyderick-Alger, K.I. 2D). 2009; Ferguson et al. This disease is spread by aphids, with transmission from infected to uninfected plants taking place in a matter of minutes or hours. The reisolation and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) results on selection FL 89-16. 2011. 72 730 733, Chang, C.J. Bacterial Leaf Scorch Xylella fastidiosa The pathogen is spread by leafhoppers, spittlebugs and other xylem-feeding insects. The described symptoms on blueberry were similar to those exhibited on grapes with Pierce's disease and on plum with leaf scald disease. (Wells et al., 1987). EUPHRESCO Secretariat 74 views Text - scientific article/review article Authors. session so others can sign in. In addition, it is known to inhabit many host plants without causing disease symptoms; among these are various grasses and herbaceous weeds that are generally found throughout the blueberry production region of Georgia. For these plants, marginal necrosis and leaf discoloration (turning yellow or pink/red) occurred only to those leaves near the inoculation sites at 125 d postinoculation. This disease is common within the southeastern states, including Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. Bacterial leaf scorch of blueberry (Xylella fastidiosa) is an exotic plant pest not present in Australia.
