Abstract:
The advantages of assessing disease severity by visual grading and by measuring healthy and diseased plant area were compared in four mild to moderate late blight epidemics during spring and in two severe epidemics during autumn in Israel. Disease progress curves obtained through visual grading showed a continuous increase, but the area of lesions tended to fluctuate during the cropping season and often reached a maximum in plots in which the total amount of foliage was also largest. The healthy haulm area differed with disease intensity and undefined seasonal and cultural influences. The decrease in healthy haulm area was not related to expansion of the blighted area only, but also to the breaking of plants at stem lesions. This phenomenon was especially evident in the warm spring season and was not determined by visual grading of disease severity. Each kind of assessment revealed different features of the epidemics and suited different applications. Visual grading enabled the easiest comparison of epidemic patterns. Lesion areas reflected patterns of inoculum potential, while healthy haulm areas reflected the integrated influences of factors affecting the crop and disease and thus provided useful data for simulating epidemics and for estimating yield losses.
