Erysiphe cruciferarum


Wikipedia Abstract

Erysiphe cruciferarum is a plant pathogen of the family Erysiphaceae, that causes the main powdery mildew of crucifers, including on Brassica crops, such as cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. E. cruciferarum is distributed worldwide, and is of particular concentration in continental Europe and the Indian subcontinent. E. cruciferarum is an ascomycete fungus that has both sexual and asexual stages. It is also an obligate parasite that appears to have host specificity; for example, isolates from turnip will not infect Brussels sprout, and vice versa. While being a part of the Erysiphaceae family, it belongs to those members in which the conidia are formed singly and whose haustoria are multilobed.
