Approaches To Diagnosis And Detection Of Cassava Brown Streak Virus (Potiviridae: Ipomovirus) In Field-Grown Cassava Crop
Cassava brown streak disease (CBSD) has been a problem in the East African coastal cassava growing areas for more than 70 years. The disease is caused by successful infection with Cassava Brown Streak Virus (CBSV) (Family, Potyviridae: Genus, Ipomovirus). Diagnosis of CBSD has for long been primarily leaf symptoms-based. This is unreliable due to the irregular pattern and variability of the disease phenotype in roots and leaves.
A screen house study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a compound fertilizer (NPK) on the response of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) to diseases, pests and mycorrhizal symbiosis. Soil drenches of NPK (15 - 15 - 15, N - P2O5- K 2O) were applied at the rates of 0.083 g (10 kg ha-1) and 0.832 g (100 kg ha-1) per 4.2 kg soil.
La yuca (Manihot exculenta) también conocida como mandioca o casava, es una de las mayores fuentes de carbohidratos que consume una gran parte de la población de los países en desarrollo. Sus raíces, tanto frescas como secas, se emplean en la alimentación humana y animal, vislumbrándose un gran potencial agroindustrial y posibilidades de exportación.
