Morphological Character Variations in Lasiodiplodia Species: Pathogen of Inflorescence Dieback in Cashew Growing Ecologies of Nigeria

Nine isolates of Lasiodiplodia theobromae were collected from cashew inflorescences showing typical symptoms of dieback disease in nine different farms belonging to various cashew growing ecologies of Nigeria. The result revealed that most of the Lasiodiplodia species isolates exhibited significant differences in morphology, colour and spore dimensions. The colony growth rate of Lasiodiplodia species range…
