Macrophomina Phaseolina

Macrophomina phaseolina may be a Botryosphaeriaceae plant pathogen fungus that causes plant disease, seedling blight, collar rot, stem rot, charcoal rot, basal stem rot, and plant disease on many plant species. One of the foremost harmful seed and soil-borne pathogens, Macrophomina phaseolina may be a fungus that infects nearly 500 plant species in additional than 100 families. The hosts include peanut, cabbage, pepper, chickpea, soybean, sunflower, sweet potato, alfalfa, sesame, potato, sorghum, wheat, and corn, among others. The identification of isolates of M. phaseolina is typically supported morphology and efforts to divide the pathogen into subspecies, but because there are wide intraspecific variations within the phenotype of the isolates, these criteria are often not reliable.
