Hardly anyone dreams about the sober, hardworking trunk-like stems that support and nourish sunflowers, or wonders what will become of them. Our objectives were to study the inheritance of partial resistance to sclerotinia stem rot and to present the initial results from mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL) that confer this resistance. << Sclerotinia survives in the soil for up to four years as irregularly-shaped fungal bodies called sclerotia.

The recent increase in sunflower production in western North and South Dakota, areas typically hotter and drier than the eastern portions of both states, and the potential involvement of stem weevils as vectors of Macrophomina (2) may lead to an increased incidence of charcoal rot in sunflower. Stems are usually round early in the season, angular and woody later in the season, and normally unbranched. Sowing times are grouped into an early and a late sowing window.

Sclerotinia sclerotiorum also incites a head rot and mid-stem rot of sunflower. Sclerotinia stem rot of sunflower is not a direct major threat to sunflower production in South Africa. Powdery mildew Erysiphe cichoracearum Oidium asteris-punicei [anamorph] Erysiphe cichoracearum var. Individual diseases and their effects on sunflower production are discussed in more detail.

Stem rot Sclerotinia sclerotiorum on dying sunflower plant. %PDF-1.2 Symptoms of Phomopsis stem canker can be easily confused with those produced by other sunflower stem pathogens. Sclerotinia head rot has a long latent phase, with the pathogen growing in the interior tissues of the sunflower head without showing outward signs of disease (personal communication-Dr. Michael Wunsch). The disease sclerotinia stem rot is caused by the fungi Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor which can occur on many broadleaf plants including canola, pea, bean, lupin, sunflower, pasture species and broadleaf weeds. Seedling wilt may occur, although Sclerotinia head and stem rot frequently develops at flowering and pod or seed filling stages. 16 to 30 fl oz/A Make no more than two sequential applications of Vertisan® before switching to a fungicide with a different mode of action.
