Seed Transmission of Fusarium oxysporum in Common Naranjilla (Solanum quitoense) in Ecuador

J. B. Ochoa and M. A. Ellis

19 July 2002

Brief

Results indicate that F. oxysporum is seedborne in common naranjilla, which is probably responsible for the rapid spread of naranjilla vascular wilt (NVW) in Ecuador. The production and use of disease-free seed should aid in preventing the introduction of the pathogen into new production areas as well as reduce disease spread in established production areas.
