Development and evaluation of a real-time PCR seed lot screening method for Fusarium circinatum, causal agent of pitch canker disease

Fusarium circinatum is a serious pathogen of Pinus spp. worldwide, causing pitch canker disease. F.┬ácircinatum can contaminate seeds both internally and externally and is readily disseminated via contaminated seed. Many countries require screening of pine seeds for F.┬ácircinatum before they can be imported. The currently accepted screening method is based on culturing the . . . → Read More: Development and evaluation of a real-time PCR seed lot screening method for Fusarium circinatum, causal agent of pitch canker disease
