The leaf-footed bug Leptoglossus zonatus (Dallas) (Het., Coreidae) was reared in Nicaragua on a diet consisting of unripe physic nut (Jatropha curcas L., Euphorbiaceae) fruit only. Here, we analyse the factors that influence farmers' decision to abandon jatropha cultivation by using a generalized linear modelling approach in combination with qualitative research methods. However, little information is available on resistance to pests and diseases as the isolated germplasm of individual organisations are not well-characterised (Bottleneck 1). 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. Below ground natural enemies can prey on soil-dwelling stages (eggs, larvae, pupae and adults) of such diverse insect pests are apparently colonized by microbes called entomopathogens often diminishing the frequency and intensity of pest outbreaks. caged with a 4-year old The putative Jatropha mosaic India virus (JMIV) was successfully transmitted through grafting, the dodder Cuscuta subinclusa and the whitefly, Bemisia tabaci. Under the stereoscopic microscope, egg masses and white pear shaped females were recovered from swollen roots. E. J. Butler & Bisby is an important pathogen with a worldwide distribution and is involved in diseases of economically important hosts such as pepper (Than et al ., 2008) and papaya (Tapia-Tussell et al .,â¦, In June 2004, Jatropha gossypifolia (Euphorbiaceae) plants growing around the Karachi University Campus were examined for root-knot nematodes. Tree pests and diseases Identify, report, prevent and minimise the introduction, spread and impacts of tree pests and diseases in the UK. Keep them well pruned so they don't outgrow their space too soon. Severe mosaic disease accompanied by yellow spots was noticed on 15% of J. curcas growing in the experimental plots of NBRI, Lucknow, India, during October of 2006. The petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, butanol and water partitioned extracts (10 g â¢ L-1) from water crude extract of shell or branch and leaf of J. curcas have different degree inhibition to root length and stem height of R. sativus and S. sudanense seedlings, in which water, butanol and ethyl acetate partitioned extracts all have higher inhibition effect than chloroform and petroleum ether partitioned extracts, with an inhibition rate above 70%. On up rooting the roots were found infested with root-knot nematodes. the lowest damage while T3 and T4 (36.83%) were the most Jatropha integerrima (Peregrina): Rust. Knowledge of natural enemy habits, requirements, and efficacy is surprisingly incomplete. The plantation of J. curcas reduces soil and wind erosion, and increases carbon sequestration that reduces the emission of CO2. Lasiodiplodia theobromae was isolated consistently from the diseased tissues of affected plants. These strategies have been looked into three different categories. The three target species belonging to the genus Aphthona Chevrolat are among the most damaging pest of sub-Saharan J. curcas cultivations (e.g. The JMIV was detected in infected plants and individual B. tabaci by polymerase chain reaction tests using two sets of begomovirus-specific degenerate primers. Keywords The effectiveness of M. anisopliae was further tested in field cages covering entire trees and containing a predetermined number of insects. Use our Citrus Pest & Disease Problem Solver to correct any issues that may arise while caring for your Citrus Trees. The following major pests and diseases affecting Jatropha in the lower valley of the Senegal river have been identified: the leaf miner Stomphastis thraustica (Meyrick, 1908) (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae), the leaf. Leaves are up to 6 inches (15 cm) long, up to 2 inches (5 cm) wide, have sharp points on the lobes, and are held on long leaf stems. On the Metamorphoses of two Hemiptera-Heteroptera from Southern China, The Relationship of Some ElsinoÃ« and Sphaceloma Species Pathogenic on Cassava and Other Euphorbiaceae in Central and South America, Erysiphe euphorbiae sp. assessment of J. curcas due to this pest has been conducted. Most of these belong to the families Malvaceae, Solanaceae, Asteraceae, Euphorbiaceae, Amaranthaceae and Cucurbitaceae. Many of the fluorescent pseudomonads, predominantly P. fluorescens, have been isolated from suppressive soil for the management of soilborne and foliar diseases. couples) T2 (8 couples), T3 (16 couples) and T4 (20 couples). However, based on the presence of B. tabaci 4th instar nymphs, the Ug1 genotypes (n = 13) colonized cassava and five other non-cassava plant species: Manihot glaziovii, Jatropha gossypifolia, Euphorbia heterophylla, Aspilia africana, and Abelmoschus esculentus, suggesting that cassava B. tabaci (Ug1 genotypes) are not restricted to cassava in Uganda. and 5 replicates. Egg cannibalism is practiced by nymphs and adults, and probably exerts a considerable influence on population size. Biometric measurements of all instars were made. progressively between June and September 2013, reaching a peak (43%) in September 2013. The objective is to outline how jatropha has performed in the region with a view to promote development work on the crop. â¢ Sustainability of jatropha should be studied on the system level and not only on the basis of life cycle analyses, since these are product-based and do not respond to land use issues. Protein, oil and water content of fresh physic nut fruit were measured throughout a whole year. 2015. Economical damage was observed on cotton, brinjal, okra, tomato, sesame, sunflower and China rose with plant death in severe conditions. To read the full-text of this research, you can request a copy directly from the authors. Macadamia trees belong to the genus Macadamia which contains four species of tree or shrub in the family Proteaceae which are grown for their edible seeds (nuts). This disease, detected in physic nut plantations in India, causes mosaic, reduced leaf size, leaf distortion, blistering and stunting of diseased plants. known from India. PGPR are known to control a wide range of phytopathogens like fungi, bacteria, viruses, insect pests, and nematodes, and they are known to control these pathogens by biocontrol mechanism which may be by competition or antagonism, induction of systemic resistance by these bacteria in the host plant, thereby containing the invading pathogens. a polyphagous heteroptera of the Scutelleridae family. Jatropha curcas L. is an introduced plant species in India, and has gained importance as a biofuel plant. (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) is the vector of cassava mosaic geminiviruses (CMGs), which are the main production constraint to cassava [Manihot esculenta Crantz (Euphorbiaceae)], both in Uganda and elsewhere in Africa. 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. can improve the livelihood of smallholder farmers in rural It is now clear that the initial claims about jatropha have not been realized. Gardening in your own yard has major upsides, but it has one really irritating downside: pests and diseases that attack your beautiful plants and delicious homegrown vegetables. The determination results show that all six solvent crude extracts (10 g â¢ L-1) have the inhibition with different degrees to root length and stem height of four species seedlings, in which the inhibition of water and 95% ethanol crude extracts is stronger and significantly higher than that of other crude extracts (P <0. n.; Aphthona dilutipes Jacoby, 1906=Aphthona damarorum Weise, 1914 syn. to the Euphorbiaceae family. 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. methods of control (which will be defined here as the use of living organisms to control insect pests), such as the use of fungi, viruses, bacteria, nematodes and autocidal control (e.g., sterile insect release), have many advantages over chemical control methods. Mutation breeding coupled with functional genomics and gene editing techniques will accelerate the development of novel germplasm with desirable traits.

Due to Calidea spp. With a modest estimate of 6â8 years of concerted efforts, improved germplasm with desired attributes could be made available, and such improved germplasm can be used to replace the already established plantations with unproductive yields in a phased manner. Pachycoris torridus (Scopoli) tem sido registrada sobre dez espÃ©cies de plantas no Brasil, sendo uma praga comum da cultura do pinhÃ£o (Jatropha curcas). Forest Disease Pests . Each flat-topped cluster has numerous tiny, bright pink butterfly attracting blooms. A damaging root and collar rot disease caused by Lasiodiplodia theobromae was observed on adult plants of Jatropha curcas in the states of Minas Gerais and SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil. No Ug2-like genotypes were detected on any of the plant species sampled, including cassava, in this study. For several of the major pests, biological control could play a much more important role if it were used in concert with appropriate cultural controls, microbial controls, resistant crop varieties, and selective chemical controls which suppress the pest more than they injure the natural enemies. Noteworthy Characteristics. Some of the characters such as stem type, branching habit, leaf size and shape of the hybrids resembled the female parent while others like leaf pigmentation, fruit and seed size, flower colour, resembled the male parent. Growth and yield can be severely limited by poor management and reduced by pests. Evidence in SSA has shown the major challenges as low seed yields, vulnerability to pests and diseases and low economic viability. A begomovirus was recently shown to be causing Jatropha mosaic disease (JMD) on Jatropha for the first time in India. The plant also reduces CO2 emission Several predator species belonging Jatropha curcas L. is a biofuel plant that belongs Jatropha are vulnerable to pests including aphids, mealy bugs, scale, and white fly. The total mite density was found to be higher when only one species was present (T. bastosi). The present compilation indicates that jatropha is susceptible to more than 35 fungal species, 4 viral and 4 bacterial pathogens, 6 nematodes and about 60 insect species. Climate change is currently affecting both biodiversity and human activities; land use change and greenhouse gases emissions are the main drivers. by carbon sequestration. stem and rotting of the roots. Although a native of tropical America, it thrives throughout Africa and Asia. 29th May 2014 on three J. curcas production sites in the South-Sudanian zone of Burkina Faso. 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. single J. curcas plant:T0 (control = no insect pest), T1 (4 industrial use, and when grown as a biofuel, J. curcas can be used to restore degraded soil by improving This pest can seriously reduce the growth of the plant, ... Jatropha curcas plantations in Burkina Faso occupied an area of 86,908 ha in 2010 . Melanose is a fungal infection of young citrus fruit, primarily but not exclusively grapefruit. The species known as Physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.) belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family and is a native crop of Mexico and Central America. Auxins enhanced rooting of cuttings during spring season, but showed poor performance or even failed to root during monsoon. Jatropha integerrima (Peregrina): Rust. Studies on the spatial distribution of two mite species, however, are rather scarce. Position Paper on Jatropha curcas, ReaÃ§Ã£o de PinhÃ£o Manso (Jatropha curcas L.) a Meloidogyne javanica e Rotylenchulus reniformis, Host range of meliolaceous fungi in India, Notes on the Life History and Morphology of Calidea dregii (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae: Scutellerini) in Ghana, West Africa, A contribution to the study of the genus Calidea Lap. Its seeds provide oil for The average sprout growth was also found maximum in thiamine treated cuttings. Owing to the high economic value of J. curcas and spread of its cultivation across the world for biofuel, it is essential to have sufficient knowledge about the pests and diseases of jatropha species. Damage increased with the developmental stage of the larvae. Â© Springer Science+Business Media New York 2012. Males perform a âcourting danceÂ prior to copulation; females may mate immediately after emergence as adults, and the first batch of eggs is usually laid about 10 days after the first mating. The Aphthona cookei species-group from Sub-Saharan Africa, comprising some pests of Jatropha curcas L., is herein analyzed and revised. The mites Polyphagotarsonemus latus and Tetranychus bastosi are the major pests affecting physic nut plantations (Jatropha curcas). Nymphs are gregarious in the early stages, but become solitary as they grow older. It heavily affects the Jatropha plants, causing e.g. Microscopic examination revealed severe hyperplasia caused by JMV with a considerable reduction in the size of stem cells. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess the yield The present methodology may help in better understanding the metabolic alterations during biotic stress in other plant species of agricultural and commercial importance. from August to October. numbers of adults of Calidea spp. their fertility and by controlling water and wind erosion. After 30 days of cryogenic storage, a greater incidence of Aspergillus sp., Cladosporium sp. Â© 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. In Karnataka state, South India, JMD caused significant yield losses by affecting the growth of the infected plant and by disease incidences of up to 47%. All rights reserved. Still, the development of resistant varieties would offer a probably more economic and more sustainable crop protection as no chemical crop protection would be needed. The main obstacle is the lack of farmers' knowledge about diseases and a system that utilize plant expert knowledge is needed. Although different entomopathogens and their products are currently used to control insect pests which offer certain advantages over conventional chemical insecticides, they also have certain disadvantages especially the lack of speed of kill in the case of insect viruses that has limited their application. Some of pests and disease in Jatropha Curcas can be seen in Table I. All parts of â¦ In Ghana, oviposition by Calidea dregii Germar occurs throughout the year, usually on the flower parts and uncommonly on the stems of its host plant, Jatropha podagrica Hooker (Euphorbiaceae). The cleft grafting was found more promising in terms of success and growth of scion in the spring season. Adult longevity is about 1.5 months for males, 2 months for females. Pests and diseases do not pose a significant threat to jatropha due to the insecticidal and toxic properties of all parts of the plant. Virol. The flea beetle Aphthona whitfieldi Bryant (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is the main pest of the bioenergy crop Jatropha cur-cas L. (Euphorbiaceae) in Burkina Faso and several other West African countries. This research might help energy policy makers in identifying key elements to prevent failure of promotion programmes. Bemisia tabaci adults and 4th instar nymphs were collected from cassava and 11 other cultivated and uncultivated species occurring adjacent to the sampled cassava fields. Cuttings treated with 600 and 800 mg l-1 thiamine showed 100% sprouting during both seasons. There have been reports on collar rot disease (caused by Macropphomina phaseolina or Rhizoctonia bataticola) at juvenile stages or by water-logging at adult stages, leaf spots disease (caused by Cercospora jatrophaecurcas, â¦ This virus (CLV-C) did not infect Nicotiana clevelandii, a diagnostic host of the type strain (CLV-T); experimental host range was very restricted and CLV-C only infected N. benthamiana and N. rustica out of several solanaceous hosts readily infected by CLV-T. It has been considered worldwide an important source of seed oil for the production of biofuel; however, this crop faces several phytosanitary problems, among which the effects caused by fungi infections, especially rust, are the major constraint in obtaining expected yields. Kochâs postulates were undertaken, to establish the pathogenicity of the two species. The attack of pests and diseases results in a considerable reduction of the production potential of jatropha. Physic nut (Jatropha curcas), an important bio-fuel crop grown in the state of Tamil Nadu, India suffered heavy losses due to a root disease in 2007. In the dry season adults go into hiding. 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. It can also spread diseases to other trees, causing a major problem. One of the most promising plant species for biofuel production in Brazil is the physic nut Jatropha curcas. Inoculations with sap from symptomatic plants resulted in systemic mosaic on three of seven J. curcas seedlings. Hence, fluorescent pseudomonads have lot of potential as biocontrol agent for the management of soilborne and foliar diseases of crop plants. To study the population dynamics of the pest in the Sissili Province of Burkina Faso, 12 sites were monitored weekly during a year and 31 sites were inspected for damage at the peak period of insect abundance. Bacteria which are shown to have potential for biocontrol of destructive diseases are distributed in many genera. and one isolate of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) It is concluded that the water crude extract from shell or branch and leaf of J. curcas has a certain herbicidal activity, and its active components exist in the high polarity fractions. The following new species are proposed: Passalora cnidoscolicola, P. jatrophigena, P. pavoniicola, Pseudocercospora amazoniae, P. brasiliensis, P. frodichiae, P. hybanthi, P. jacquemontiae, P. schrankiicola, P. ubajarensis, P. variabilis, Stenella hiamanthi, S. manihotis. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the selectivity of different doses and mixtures of paraquat and diuron in direted-spray applications in physic nut plants in greenhouse conditions. The oil content of the seeds was slightly reduced by the bugs, but protein content remained unchanged. A virus serologically indistinguishable from CLV-T was isolated from mosaic- affected material obtained from Nigeria; East African and Nigerian isolates were essentially similar in host range and symptomatology. Rearing on a natural diet is possible, and the survival rates obtained were favourable. In a field trial, a scheduled high-volume spray regime using B. bassiana increased fruit yield by 28%, and was more effective than malathion or an aqueous extract of ground neem seeds. It contains approximately 170 species of succulent plants, shrubs and trees (some are deciduous, like Jatropha curcas). The perception of pest and disease damage, although stated by farmers as the second most frequent reason to disadopt, was not correlated with this decision in the generalized linear model. (Hem.-Het. Just like other plants, trees require care to avoid illness and disease. If you know the name of the tree pest or disease affecting your trees, see the Forestry Commission guidance giving detailed information on specific tree pests or diseasesknown to be present in the UK. The argument fails to consider the multitude of pests and diseases, either generalists that have evolved to cope with a range of toxic plant compounds, or pests of closely-related species with similar defence mechanisms. Upper surface of the leaf is dark green but the undersides display a whitish cast. Symptom variants generally remained unchanged when grafted into a highly susceptible South American cassava variety. New and interesting collections of cercosporoid hyphomycetes from Brazil are reported in the present paper. A sick tree can fall or lose large branches more easily, posing a risk to your family and home. DHPB, which would explain the aposematic colouration of the bugs, confers chemical protection to P. klugii against vertebrate predators. The experimental data were analyzed using geostatistical analyses. In gel-diffusion serology tests, pronounced precipitation spurs developed between CLV-T and CLV-C indicating that the isolates were related but not identical serologically. There was 7% yield gain in T1 while there was In Yucatan, Mexico, this crop has been affected by rust caused by Phakopsora jatrophicola (syn. The statistical experiment was completely randomized with temperature x days of storage. Jatropha tolerate pruning well, which gives you options when it comes to the form of your plant. RETITHRIPS SYRIACUS (MAYET), THE BLACK VINE THRIPS (INSECTA: THYSANOPTERA: THRIPIDAE) NEW TO PUERTO RICO. All the host families and the fungal genera are arranged alphabetically with their corresponding parasite and the host plant. Potential host plants of the two insect pests were collected and bred in the laboratory in Leo where they were used to feed the insect pests. Two B. tabaci genotype clusters, Ug1 and Ug2, differentiated at 8% nucleotide (nt) divergence within the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (mtCOI) gene, have been shown to occur on cassava in Uganda. Jatropha is a genus of flowering plants in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae.The name is derived from the Greek words á¼°Î±ÏÏÏÏ (iatros), meaning "physician", and ÏÏÎ¿ÏÎ® (trophe), meaning "nutrition", hence the common name physic nut.Another common name is nettlespurge. In contradiction of the general belief that J. curcas was resistant to pests because of its toxicity, a large number of insects and other pests have been identified that can severely reduce growth and yield (Anitha and Varaprasad 2012, Minengu et al. Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. The results show that physic nut is a highly suitable host plant, which can maintain populations of this insect pest throughout the whole year as fruit are constantly present with only little fluctuation in their nutritional quality. Biofuels are getting increasing interest because of their sustainability potential. These hindrances have to be addressed in order to transform jatropha into a viable commercial crop. The parents and their 23 hybrid plants were subjected to random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis using 61 random decamer primers. The evidence is now mounting that this is far from the reality within the relatively new plantation production systems around the globe. In interspecific hybridization, crosses involving J. integerrima were extensively studied necessitating the need for exploitation of other economically important species for trait incorporation. , Ectendomeliola, Irenopsis, Meliola and Prataprajella popularity as a potential biofuel crop, due to the families,.
