F Neck rot gotrytis on a plant under particularly moist field conditions close to harvest healthy plant on the left. Arrows indicate and bp DNA ladder fragments. Although traditional methods of isolating fungi onto standard agar media, followed by classic morphological and microscopic techniques, provide relatively easy and accessible methods to differentiate B.

Therefore, combining classic morphological and microscropic examination of cultures with newer molecular techniques, such as PCR-RFLP 38 or real-time PCR 6will enable accurate differentiation of these species. Botryotinia porri van Beyma Thoe Kingma Whetzel.

During infection, the onion will also produce hydroxycinnamic acid amide, which is a common plant defense response. Symptomatology, etiology, and histopathology of Botrytis brown stain of onion.

Botrytis Species Associated with Neck Rot, Scape Blight, and Umbel Blight of Onion

Close Essential information for the horticulture community. Do Not apply more thatn Botrytis allii is a plant pathogena fungus that causes neck rot in stored onions Allium cepa and related crops.

Onion seed assayed for Botrytis spp. Botrytis neck rot of alliums, caused by the fungus Botrytis alliiaffects onions,garlic, leeks and shallots.

Isolations from bulbs onto agar media consistently showed a lower incidence of latent infection detected than the ELISA, until the bulbs had been stored for several months, by which time the ELISA and conventional isolation methods gave similar results. Alternatively, if weather permits, bulbs should be air dried in windrows after lifting. Neck rot caused by Botrytis allii occurs in regions all over the world, but, it is most prevalent in temperate regions due to their conducive climates.


If dry weather prevails, cure garlic on the ground for days.

To inoculate onion plants with neck rot species of Botrytisa spore suspension of the pathogen can be sprayed onto plants. Neck rot disease is encouraged by periods boteytis excessive rainfall and humid conditions combined with standing water on the leaves. Healthy bulbs stained green but infected bulbs stained red. Although Nielsen et al.

Pathogenesis of Botrytis cinereaB. Botrytis neck rot primarily appears after harvest in onions and garlic that are not cured or stored correctly. Concentric grey rings may form in the girdling lesions as a result of sporulation of the fungus beneath the outer cuticle.

Surface-sterilizing the plants with 0. However, other factors can cause a change in the pH of bulb tissues, which could result in false positives when using this staining procedure Introduction to Plant Pathology. In order to control this disease, most agriculturalists utilize the fungicide benomyl [8].

Benomyl is applied directly to the seed, as a pretreatment, before planting. These turn light brown as the tissues are destroyed around the necks and bodies of affected bulbs. This pathogen is different from the one that causes Botrytis leaf blight. Seed-borne infection and its relationship to the disease in the onion crop.

Due to constantly changing labels, laws and regulations, the Extension Services can assume no liability for the suggested use of chemicals contained herein. Mean percentage of seed with Botrytis y. After harvest, topped onions and garlic can become infected if the cut edge comes in contact with spores or soil containing sclerotia. Refer to the appendix for details of the media. The first fungus is the principal species affecting onions in western states. For practical reasons we have decided not to translate all pages in several languages anymore because it was too heavy to maintain but some of the labels of the basic and advanced query pages are still available.


White mycelium that collapses onto agar surface. Neck rot is primarily a storage disease, although infection originates in the field as leaves and necks mature or are injured, and become infected by spores blown from infested onion debris and improperly disposed cull piles. This would facilitate decisions regarding storage, processing, and sale of the bulbs.

Onion Botrytis Disease – Bugwoodwiki

The real-time PCR assay appears to be more sensitive than plating onion seed onto selective agar media, as the PCR assay enabled DNA of Botrytis neck rot species to be detected from seed lots that tested negative using conventional seed plating assays 6. The host range of Botrytis spp. Aklii Wikimedia Wikipedia Wikispecies.

Normally this fungus solely attacks white-bulbed cultivars.
