Abstract:
The objective of this study was to identify Fusarium species associated with root and stalk rot of maize and their pathogenicity on root and stalk of maize in Kermanshah Province, Iran. In this survey 480 Fusarium strains were isolated and identified from maize ears collected from different geographic regions in Kermanshah province, Iran during 2006-2009. All these 480 strains belonged to 22 Fusarium species. This Fusarium strains were evaluated for their pathogenicity on maize and observed that F. verticillioides, F. subglutinans and F. pseudoanthophilum are the most pathogenic on stalk. Foot rot assessment revealed that F. verticillioides as the most damaging species. This is the first comprehensive report on identity and distribution of Fusarium spp. from maize in west of Iran while F. pseudonygamai was reported for the first time from west of Iran.
