Alternaria alternata and Plectosporium tabacinum on Snap Beans: Pathogenicity, Cultivar Reaction, and Fungicide Efficacy

H. R. Dillard and A. C. Cobb

December 2008


Pods from several commercial fields in New York and Pennsylvania showed symptoms of pod-flecking complex (PFC) in 2006. Two pathogens were isolated and identified as Alternaria alternata and Plectosporium tabacinum. Objectives of this study were to determine etiology, identify Alternaria isolates to species, characterize susceptibility of snap bean cultivars commonly grown in New York and Pennsylvania to A. alternata and P. tabacinum, and examine fungicide efficacy for PFC control.
