SEM analysis revealed erumpent uredinia with 25 to 35 μm diameter open pore, containing 23 μm length x 11 μm wide equinulated urediniospores. No yield loss The Aphthona flea beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) has been identified as the main pest of J. curcas in various regions of Africa [2] [3] [4]. All parts of … In addition to those, enhancing tolerance to biotic (pest and disease) and abiotic (drought, salinity, freezing, and heavy metals) stresses as another important genetic engineering strategy to facilitate the cultivation of nonedible oil plants under conditions unsuitable for food crops has been addressed. Biometric measurements of all instars were made. Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is a geographical region consisting of 49 countries, out of which at least 39 countries have experience with the cultivation of Jatropha curcas L. Since the year 2000, jatropha production escalated in SSA and peaked around 2007/2008.

Cluster analysis based on Jaccard's similarity coefficient outgrouped the female parent from rest of the genotypes at a similarity coefficient of 0.55. Erysiphe euphorbiae sp. Phylogenetic analysis of the core CP sequences with those of selected begomoviruses grouped JMIV in a separate cluster close to Indian cassava mosaic virus and Sri Lankan cassava mosaic virus and shared highest nucleotide identities (90-95%) with them. With the advent of recombinant-DNA technology, an opportunity has emerged in alleviating certain commercial short-comings of pathogens and fostering the creation of new generation biopesticides. single J. curcas plant:T0 (control = no insect pest), T1 (4 ), root rot disease (caused by Fusarium moniliforme) and damping off (caused by Phytophtora spp.) These results further confirm that JMD in India was caused by begomoviruses and they were most closely related to cassava mosaic viruses from the Indian sub-continent. Effect of auxins (IAA, IBA and NAA) and vitamin B1 (thiamine) on rooting response of branch cuttings and air-layers of Jatropha curcas during spring and monsoon seasons was studied. In Mexico, despite the initially assumed economic, environmental, and social benefits of the crop, many farmers have abandoned jatropha cultivation. nov. was found on the green leaves ofJatropha gossypifolia in India. Genetic diversity analysis using molecular markers unarguably confirmed the Central American and Mexican regions as the treasure troves of J. curcas genetic diversity which need to be exploited in varietal development and hybrid breeding programs. Jatropha curcas plant as a species of particular interest with potential for cultivation even in constrained land (Warra and Prasad, 2016) has shown its tolerance to mercury (Hg)-contaminated soils from historical gold mines that represent a potential risk to human health and the environment (Marrugo-Negrete et al., 2016). It has become clear that jatropha may suffer attacks of pests and diseases, once cultivated in more intensive production systems (Meshram and Joshi, 1994; Nam Hei, 2008). It can also spread diseases to other trees, causing a major problem. The research was carried out at Cryogenic/UFCG, Sanity/UFPB and Cotton/Embrapa. Symptoms typical of cassava mosaic disease appeared in only three of 105 plants in experiments on transmission of CLV-C and CLV-T by whiteflies, when attempted acquisition of either clarified CLV-infective sap or purified CLV was made through ‘Parafilm’ membranes. As the fungus propagates in dead wood, prompt pruning is an effective way of combating this disease. enemies. of physic nut in India. Young plant pests: Cutworm, Scarabeid Beetle, Army worm, Grasshopper. Jatropha podagrica gummosis, caused by Botryodiplodia theobromae, was found for the first time in China at Pearl Square in Beihai City, Guangxi province in 2005. CLV-C could be purified satisfactorily with the method used for CLV-T but only after modifying the procedure by substituting phosphate for borate in the extraction buffer, n-butanol for n-butanol/chloroform in clarification of extracts, and phosphate for borate buffer when resuspending concentrated virus.

Symptom variants generally remained unchanged when grafted into a highly susceptible South American cassava variety. Though this crop suffers less damage from pests and diseases, some do cause a certain amount of injury. The egg parasitism increased However, P. latus and T. bastosi are suitable for the development of I. zuluagai and E. concordis as oviposition of both predators did not differ in relation to prey species. This technique can be practically applied on commercial scale in the areas where J. gossypifolia grows as a weed. These results provide the basis for further researches of this host-pathogen interaction, and may be useful in the development of new molecular methods for diagnostic of this specie. The results Fallows in the vicinity of the J. curcas plantations were particularly examined. However, by itself, biological control often fails to control economic damage to the crop. EF153739). The phorbol ester DHPB has been detected in 5th instars and adults of Pachycoris klugii which feed on Jatropha curcas, a producer of phorbol esters with mollusc-, insect-, and vertebrate toxicity. Fluorescent pseudomonads enhance the plant growth parameters, and hence, they are called plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). This study was conducted Hymenopteran egg parasitoids all belonging to the Scelionidae family were found. The mites Polyphagotarsonemus latus and Tetranychus bastosi are the major pests affecting physic nut plantations (Jatropha curcas). Most of these belong to the families Malvaceae, Solanaceae, Asteraceae, Euphorbiaceae, Amaranthaceae and Cucurbitaceae. This is the first record of the pathogen on J. podagrica in China. It was recorded from 154 plant species including field crops, vegetables, ornamentals, weeds, bushes and trees. The inhibition of petroleum ether crude extract is the smallest among all crude extracts, with an inhibition rate below 10%. Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) The respiration rate was more than twofold as compared to healthy ones. Melanose is a fungal infection of young citrus fruit, primarily but not exclusively grapefruit. The three target species belonging to the genus Aphthona Chevrolat are among the most damaging pest of sub-Saharan J. curcas cultivations (e.g. Pests and diseases do not pose a significant threat to jatropha due to the insecticidal and toxic properties of all parts of the plant. In a dipping bioassay, the median lethal concentration (LC) of the most efficient strain, M. anisopliae NB, was determined as 4.34 106 50 conidia/ml for adult P. klugii . Furthermore, many microbial insecticides are compatible with Integrated Pest Management (IPM). n.; Aphthona nigripes (Allard, 1890)=Pseudeugonotes vannutellii Jacoby, 1899a syn. Sufficient conditions for the stability of the equilibrium points of the system are among the results obtained through qualitative analysis. Virol.

Due to Calidea spp. However, the role of alternative hosts in the ecology of cassava B. tabaci genotypes and their possible involvement in the epidemiology of cassava mosaic disease (CMD) in Uganda remain unknown. The findings are confirmed by means of numerical simulations. Auxins enhanced rooting of cuttings during spring season, but showed poor performance or even failed to root during monsoon. Jatropha curcas L. is an introduced plant species in India, and has gained importance as a biofuel plant. Use our Citrus Pest & Disease Problem Solver to correct any issues that may arise while caring for your Citrus Trees. known from India. Pests and diseases do not pose a significant threat to jatropha due to the insecticidal and toxic properties of all parts of the plant. This chapter reviews the known insect natural enemies of major potato pests around the world: Coleoptera, including the Colorado potato beetle, hadda beetle and related lady beetles, the Andean potato weevil complex, Gelechiid tuber worms, the potato psyllid, and aphids. One of the most promising plant species for biofuel production in Brazil is the physic nut Jatropha curcas. 05) , with an inhibition rate of water crude extract to root length and stem height of four species seedlings above 75%. The contrast of MRI images distinguishes abnormalities in anatomical structures of infected and healthy stem. Jatropha integerrima (Peregrina): Rust. These included The similarity value between the parents (41.4%) was less than those between parents and hybrids. The type of injury and amount of damage to the fruits and seeds of physic nut (Jatropha curcas L., Euphorbiaceae) caused by two species of fruit feeding true bugs, Pachycoris klugii Burmeister (Heteroptera: Scutelleridae) and Leptoglossus zonatus (Dallas) (Heteroptera: Coreidae), and the flower feeding true bug, Hypselonotus intermedius Distant (Heteroptera: Coreidae), were assessed using field cages. If possible, identify the infestation as early as possible and treat with the leave toxic option. However, this study already allows us to propose recommendations for further research on management. areas. Access scientific knowledge from anywhere.
