First Report of Sclerotinia minor Infecting Eclipta prostrata in Texas Academic Article uri icon


  • Symptomatic Eclipta prostrate plants exhibiting symptoms of Sclerotinia blight were collected from a peanut field near Stephenville, TX. Pathogenicity tests demonstrated that isolates obtained were pathogenic on both E. prostrate and peanut. While E. prostrate has been reported as a weed host of Sclerotinia minor, this to our knowledge is the first reported occurrence of the disease in Texas.
