Phoma, or stem canker

Posted Apr 01 2009 12:37pm

      Phoma, or stem canker, is a fungal disease (Latin name  Leptosphaeria maculans )which can cause significant crop  losses in winter broccoli and other brassicas in epidemic years.



Initial infections are caused by fungal spores which infect the young
leaves of the recently emerged crop to form phoma leaf lesions.
