Larvae and adults of the insect Gel diffusion tests were performed with antiserum to Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), Tobacco ringspot virus, and Chrysanthemum virus B (PVAS-242a, PVAS-157, and PVAS-349, respectively; ATCC, Manassas, VA). Jatropha curcas is an important commodity for farmers. These mites, however, exhibited uniform spatial distribution when found at extreme densities (low or high). The 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional scaling by principal component analysis (PCA) grouped some hybrids with male parent, some with female parent while others in between both the parents. The limited information of this species, low and inconsistent yields, lack of high genetic variability, and susceptibility to biotic and abiotic stresses hamper selective breeding. cutworm, wireworms, grubs, armyworms, etc. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess the yield Many of the fluorescent pseudomonads, predominantly P. fluorescens, have been isolated from suppressive soil for the management of soilborne and foliar diseases. is a Heteropteran that feeds However, based on the presence of B. tabaci 4th instar nymphs, the Ug1 genotypes (n = 13) colonized cassava and five other non-cassava plant species: Manihot glaziovii, Jatropha gossypifolia, Euphorbia heterophylla, Aspilia africana, and Abelmoschus esculentus, suggesting that cassava B. tabaci (Ug1 genotypes) are not restricted to cassava in Uganda. The plant also reduces CO2 emission known from India. It causes characteristic leaf lesions, fruit necrosis, and cankers on young stems and branches. Total development time from egg to adult under natural conditions is 40 days. Jatropha integerrima is a dense, rounded shrub that grows up to 10 feet (3 m) tall to almost tree-like proportions with age in frost-free climates. assessment of J. curcas due to this pest has been conducted. Preliminary management practices for the disease are proposed. RETITHRIPS SYRIACUS (MAYET), THE BLACK VINE THRIPS (INSECTA: THYSANOPTERA: THRIPIDAE) NEW TO PUERTO RICO. In addition to those, enhancing tolerance to biotic (pest and disease) and abiotic (drought, salinity, freezing, and heavy metals) stresses as another important genetic engineering strategy to facilitate the cultivation of nonedible oil plants under conditions unsuitable for food crops has been addressed. The cropping system did not significantly influence the abundance and attack level. Erysiphe euphorbiae sp. Phylogenetic analysis of the core CP sequences with those of selected begomoviruses grouped JMIV in a separate cluster close to Indian cassava mosaic virus and Sri Lankan cassava mosaic virus and shared highest nucleotide identities (90-95%) with them. Jatropha tolerate pruning well, which gives you options when it comes to the form of your plant. Pachycoris torridus (Scopoli) tem sido registrada sobre dez espécies de plantas no Brasil, sendo uma praga comum da cultura do pinhão (Jatropha curcas). The begomoviruses causing JMD in the Americas grouped separately from JMIV and shared only 72.8-75.2% core CP nucleotide identities thus they are distinct. Essential groups, There is little information about the selectivity of herbicides in physic nut (Jatropha curcas) in Brazil. Bemisia tabaci adults and 4th instar nymphs were collected from cassava and 11 other cultivated and uncultivated species occurring adjacent to the sampled cassava fields. Adelgids are small, soft-bodied aphids that feed exclusively on conifer ous … A diverse complex of insect and disease pests can affect Christmas trees. Fluorescent pseudomonads associated with plants include Pseudomonas fluorescens, P. putida, P. aeruginosa, and P. aureofaciens. Among several chemicals assayed, abamectin 0.0009% provided best control of both pests. There are also many insects which are beneficial, and in some instances essential. and one isolate of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) On up rooting the roots were found infested with root-knot nematodes. Further improvement in existing microbial pesticides and genetically modified organisms, therefore, is inevitable to make way for their commercial application. No Ug2-like genotypes were detected on any of the plant species sampled, including cassava, in this study. Therefore, the objective of this study was to measure the spatial distributions of P. latus and T. bastosi in the physic nut plantations. Effect of auxins (IAA, IBA and NAA) and vitamin B1 (thiamine) on rooting response of branch cuttings and air-layers of Jatropha curcas during spring and monsoon seasons was studied. We introduce an area‐normalized index, the “Potential‐Actual Cultivation Index” (PACI), to better depict the ratio between the suitable areas shared both by the crop and its pest, and the number of actual cultivations, in a target country. to the Euphorbiaceae family. Climate change is currently affecting both biodiversity and human activities; land use change and greenhouse gases emissions are the main drivers. Physic nut (Jatropha curcas), an important bio-fuel crop grown in the state of Tamil Nadu, India suffered heavy losses due to a root disease in 2007. Orange trees can be heavily affected by insects (mainly aphids) and also by fungal, bacterial and virus diseases. It was concluded that crioconservation at cryogenic temperatures did not reduce the incidence of fungus on Jatropha curcas seeds. When both the mite species were found in the same plantation, their peak densities occurred at different times. in Léo, South Burkina Faso during the 2013 rainy season, The results demonstrated the value of MRI and HR-MAS NMR spectroscopy in studying viral infection and metabolic shift in plants. Jatropha integerrima (Peregrina): Rust This has been due to lack of elite planting materials, poor agronomic practices and inadequate crop management systems. Jatropha is a genus of flowering plants in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae.The name is derived from the Greek words ἰατρός (iatros), meaning "physician", and τροφή (trophe), meaning "nutrition", hence the common name physic nut.Another common name is nettlespurge. This slender-stemmed, multi-trunked tropical evergreen tree or large shrub, a native of Cuba, reaches 15 feet in height with an equal spread, and has unusual 3 to 6-inch-long leaves varying in shape from oblong, fiddle-shaped, or even-lobed. Whereas adult L.zonatus of both sexes produced more damage than the nymphs, female P.klugii caused less damage than nymphs, and male P.klugii no significant damage at all. 2015. nov. was found on the green leaves ofJatropha gossypifolia in India. Interestingly, thiamine triggered highest rooting during monsoon and was comparable during spring. The main obstacle is the lack of farmers' knowledge about diseases and a system that utilize plant expert knowledge is needed. This is the first report of this disease in Brazil, previously only No symptoms were observed on plants inoculated with C. gloeosporioides; however, leaf and stem lesions developed after inoculation with C. truncatum, which was reisolated from the diseased tissue, confirming it as the disease-causing agent. a polyphagous heteroptera of the Scutelleridae family. However, the mites showed an aggregated distribution in intermediate densities. Population Dynamics of Aphthona whitfieldi (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), Pest of Jatropha curcas, and Environmental Factors Favoring Its Abundance in Burkina Faso, The Effect of Aphthona whitfieldi (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Populations’ Density on the Growth of Jatropha curcas in Burkina Faso, Alternative Host Plants of Calidea panaethiopica (Hemiptera: Scutelleridae) and Aphtona whitfieldi (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), Insect Pests of Jatropha curcas , South Burkina Faso, Jatropha growth and oilseed production in Africa, Fueling the future; plant genetic engineering for sustainable biodiesel production, Optimized Fuzzy Neural Network for Jatropha Curcas Plant Disease Identification, Why do farmers abandon jatropha cultivation? During that period, four J. curcas’ plantations of six locations in the province were prospected for alternative host plants of the two insect pests. DHPB from Pachycoris activates protein kinase C (PKC) which appears to be the main molecular target for phorbol esters. All three species reduced overall yield. The biofuel crop Jatropha curcas has been promoted in developing countries as a means of improving the livelihoods of rural populations. Flowers arise from thick stalks in cymes. Contrast of T(1)- and T(2)-weighted images showed significant differences in the spatial distribution of water, lipids and macromolecules in virus-infected and healthy stem tissues. © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2012. Symptom variants generally remained unchanged when grafted into a highly susceptible South American cassava variety. Upper surface of the leaf is dark green but the undersides display a whitish cast. All rights reserved. Males perform a “courting dance“ prior to copulation; females may mate immediately after emergence as adults, and the first batch of eggs is usually laid about 10 days after the first mating. The petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, butanol and water partitioned extracts (10 g • L-1) from water crude extract of shell or branch and leaf of J. curcas have different degree inhibition to root length and stem height of R. sativus and S. sudanense seedlings, in which water, butanol and ethyl acetate partitioned extracts all have higher inhibition effect than chloroform and petroleum ether partitioned extracts, with an inhibition rate above 70%. A survey of the natural enemies of C. panaethiopica was carried out from 3rd June 2013 to Published 26 September 2018 In a dipping bioassay, the median lethal concentration (LC) of the most efficient strain, M. anisopliae NB, was determined as 4.34 106 50 conidia/ml for adult P. klugii . The statistical experiment was completely randomized with temperature x days of storage. Here, we analyse the factors that influence farmers' decision to abandon jatropha cultivation by using a generalized linear modelling approach in combination with qualitative research methods. Jatropha curcas mosaic disease is a newly emerging disease that challenges the productivity of a prospective biofuel crop, J. curcas. Young plant pests: Cutworm, Scarabeid Beetle, Army worm, Grasshopper. Some of the characters such as stem type, branching habit, leaf size and shape of the hybrids resembled the female parent while others like leaf pigmentation, fruit and seed size, flower colour, resembled the male parent. Recently, Jatropha is facing some difficulty with pests and diseases. H.intermedius is a pollinator of this entomogamous plant. The two most frequent species found were Pachycoris klugii and Leptoglossus zonatus. 2013, Muys et al. DHPB, which would explain the aposematic colouration of the bugs, confers chemical protection to P. klugii against vertebrate predators. The treatments consisted of various In Mexico, despite the initially assumed economic, environmental, and social benefits of the crop, many farmers have abandoned jatropha cultivation. Since they are living organisms, some biological insecticides can be produced cheaply and, if established in the environment, can provide sustained control with little or no reapplication. Pentatomidae), A strain of cassava latent virus occurring in coastal district of Kenya, Suitability of physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.) as single host plant for the leaf‐footed bug Leptoglossus zonatus Dallas (Het., Coreidae), Evaluation of damage to physic nut (Jatropha curcas) by true bugs, Incidence of fungus and physiological quality of seeds of Jatropha curcas L. after cryogenic storage, Naturally Occurring Insecticidal Molecules as Candidates for Genetic Engineering, Microbial Management of Soil Insect-Pests: New Inventions and Future Thrust (Review), Directed-spray application of paraquat and diuron in physic nut plants, Biological Control of Potato Insect Pests, PGPR-Mediated Systemic Resistance for Sustainable Agriculture. It contains approximately 170 species of succulent plants, shrubs and trees (some are deciduous, like Jatropha curcas). The effect of cropping systems (hedge, intercropping, and monoculture) and surrounding vegetation on population densities of A. whitfieldi was assessed. The Ug1 genotypes occurred (as adults) on all 12 source-plant species sampled. The leaf-footed bug Leptoglossus zonatus (Dallas) (Het., Coreidae) was reared in Nicaragua on a diet consisting of unripe physic nut (Jatropha curcas L., Euphorbiaceae) fruit only. In interspecific hybridization, crosses involving J. integerrima were extensively studied necessitating the need for exploitation of other economically important species for trait incorporation. A few will rapidly kill trees and demand that you keep a watch for symptoms. The core coat protein (CP) sequences of ~575 bases were obtained from two isolates collected at Bangalore and Dharwad, South India. Lychee Erinose Mite The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has put an immediate quarantine in place for all of Lee County due to the presence of a major pest of lychee, Aceria litchii , known as lychee erinose mite. Sufficient conditions for the stability of the equilibrium points of the system are among the results obtained through qualitative analysis. Vestiges of the nymphal scent glands retained by the adult are described and discussed. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the selectivity of different doses and mixtures of paraquat and diuron in direted-spray applications in physic nut plants in greenhouse conditions. Under the stereoscopic microscope, egg masses and white pear shaped females were recovered from swollen roots. There have been reports on collar rot disease (caused by Macropphomina phaseolina or Rhizoctonia bataticola) at juvenile stages or by water-logging at adult stages, leaf spots disease (caused by Cercospora jatrophaecurcas, … It is concluded that the water crude extract from shell or branch and leaf of J. curcas has a certain herbicidal activity, and its active components exist in the high polarity fractions. Currently, little is known about the biology of P. jatrophicola. To our knowledge, this is the first report of CMV on J. curcas. The plantation of J. curcas reduces soil and wind erosion, and increases carbon sequestration that reduces the emission of CO2. enemies. No yield loss Jatropha curcas L. is a biofuel plant that belongs Maintaining the health of the trees on your property is an important step in keeping your yard beautiful. Keywords Bacteria which are shown to have potential for biocontrol of destructive diseases are distributed in many genera. CLV-C could be purified satisfactorily with the method used for CLV-T but only after modifying the procedure by substituting phosphate for borate in the extraction buffer, n-butanol for n-butanol/chloroform in clarification of extracts, and phosphate for borate buffer when resuspending concentrated virus. Colletotrichum truncatum and a member of the species complex C. gloeosporioides sensu lato were consistently isolated from fresh stem samples showing early symptoms (chlorosis). the lowest damage while T3 and T4 (36.83%) were the most Possible coevolution between seed predators and the phenology of the host plant is discussed. Severe mosaic disease accompanied by yellow spots was noticed on 15% of J. curcas growing in the experimental plots of NBRI, Lucknow, India, during October of 2006. The evidence is now mounting that this is far from the reality within the relatively new plantation production systems around the globe. Furthermore, we report here on the first record of predatory mites associated with P. latus and T. bastosi on native J. curcas plants in Brazil. The dwarf jatropha tree (Jatropha integerrima 'Compacta') is the one to stays smaller and denser and is the one most commonly sold at nurseries. This is the first record of the pathogen on J. podagrica in China. The findings are confirmed by means of numerical simulations. Jatropha curcas (Jatropha), an oilseed plant with a multitude of uses, is considered as a potential biofuel crop. The aetiology of this disease has not been resolved. Economical damage was observed on cotton, brinjal, okra, tomato, sesame, sunflower and China rose with plant death in severe conditions. Versatile and showy, the clusters of tiny but vivid flowers stand out against deep green leaves and the small size makes it the perfect accent tree … It has been considered worldwide an important source of seed oil for the production of biofuel; however, this crop faces several phytosanitary problems, among which the effects caused by fungi infections, especially rust, are the major constraint in obtaining expected yields. The highest numbers of The species is multivoltine and each female oviposits repeatedly during the rainy season. ), root rot disease (caused by Fusarium moniliforme) and damping off (caused by Phytophtora spp.) Phorbol esters of J. curcas exhibit a wide range of acute toxic effects in vertebrates and insects. However, J. curcas is attacked by many insect pests including C. panaethiopica, Hence, the global information on various fungal, bacterial and viral diseases and damage caused due to nematodes and insect pests on jatropha species and their management has been compiled for ready reference to academicians, researchers and farmers. showed that the control (T0) and T1 (10.5% damage) showed The physiological quality was preserved during the cryoconservation. The identification of alternative host plants of C. panaethiopica and A. whitfieldi was conducted from June 3rd 2013 to November 30th 2014 in the Sissili province, South Burkina Faso. Moreover, spores harvested from Physic nut leaves were able to produce new pustules after 13 days of inoculation on healthy detached J. curcas leaves. Several predator species belonging Pre-oviposition time, number of ovipositions and total number of eggs per female are given. Need for systematic research on biotic stress resistance, development of alternate control measures over chemical control is emphasized. to the Araneae, Tarachodidae and Mantidae families were also found. Larval development stages can be distinguished by the width of the head capsule and pronotum. However, by itself, biological control often fails to control economic damage to the crop. The Aphthona cookei species-group from Sub-Saharan Africa, comprising some pests of Jatropha curcas L., is herein analyzed and revised. One of the most promising plant species for biofuel production in Brazil is the physic nut Jatropha curcas. The average sprout growth was also found maximum in thiamine treated cuttings. Keywords – Burkina Faso, Biofuel, Jatropha curcas, Calidea The symptoms observed were yellowing, drooping and shedding of leaves, blackening and decaying of the collar region of the ... A popular misconception has been perpetuated that jatropha is largely resistant to pests and diseases because of its toxicity. Though this crop suffers less damage from pests and diseases, some do cause a certain amount of injury. With Florida's humid, hot climate, fungus is the cause of most plant diseases, but bacteria and viruses can hurt plants as well. Although different entomopathogens and their products are currently used to control insect pests which offer certain advantages over conventional chemical insecticides, they also have certain disadvantages especially the lack of speed of kill in the case of insect viruses that has limited their application. All these nine genera represent 613 species and infra- specific taxa known till the year 2006, infected 766 host plants belonging to 349 host genera distributed among 104 families. The flea beetle Aphthona whitfieldi Bryant (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is the main pest of the bioenergy crop Jatropha cur-cas L. (Euphorbiaceae) in Burkina Faso and several other West African countries. Jatropha multifida, commonly known as coral plant, is a single-trunked evergreen shrub or small tree that is native from Mexico through Central America to Brazil.It is now grown in tropical to sub-tropical areas throughout the world as an ornamental shrub featuring large, lobed and divided, orbicular leaves plus a long showy bloom of coral-red flowers. The availability of infectious clones will provide a valuable tool to screen J. curcas cultivars for disease resistance and facilitate the generation of virus-resistant J. curcas plants by transgenic technology. Also, time delay has been incorporated in roguing and reformulates the mathematical model using delay differential equations. This disease, detected in physic nut plantations in India, causes mosaic, reduced leaf size, leaf distortion, blistering and stunting of diseased plants. of physic nut in India. It is therefore likely that the sequestration of Gardening in your own yard has major upsides, but it has one really irritating downside: pests and diseases that attack your beautiful plants and delicious homegrown vegetables. The parameters analysed were infructescence, fruit, seed and seed kernel weight, seed length, fruit and seed abortion, seed malformation and oil and protein content of the seed kernels. The present methodology may help in better understanding the metabolic alterations during biotic stress in other plant species of agricultural and commercial importance. The study of the ecology of these species is a pre-requisite for the development of appropriate control methods. Knowledge of natural enemy habits, requirements, and efficacy is surprisingly incomplete. Three The following new species are proposed: Passalora cnidoscolicola, P. jatrophigena, P. pavoniicola, Pseudocercospora amazoniae, P. brasiliensis, P. frodichiae, P. hybanthi, P. jacquemontiae, P. schrankiicola, P. ubajarensis, P. variabilis, Stenella hiamanthi, S. manihotis. Furthermore, many microbial insecticides are compatible with Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Several studies have indicated that fluorescent pseudomonads induce systemic resistance against many pathogens and control diseases caused by them. PGPR are known to control a wide range of phytopathogens like fungi, bacteria, viruses, insect pests, and nematodes, and they are known to control these pathogens by biocontrol mechanism which may be by competition or antagonism, induction of systemic resistance by these bacteria in the host plant, thereby containing the invading pathogens. Keep them well pruned so they don't outgrow their space too soon. Here, we report the complete nucleotide sequences of a Jatropha virus isolated from Dharwad, Southern India. To overall understanding the herbicidal activity of extracts from Jatropha curcas L., the herbicidal activity of water, 95% ethanol, butanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform and petroleum ether crude extracts from shell or branch and leaf of J. curcas was bioassayed using Raphanus sativus L., Amaranthus tricolor L., Sorghum sudanense (Piper) Stapf and Lolium perenne L. as experimental materials, and for water crude extract with the highest herbicidal activity, the active component separation and its herbicidal activity bioassay were conducted. Reverse transcription (RT)-PCR assays with CMV coat protein gene specific primers (Genbank Accession Nos. Superficial disinfestation, was carried out and seeds were distributed in Petri dishes, for incubation at 25 ± 2ºC, over a period of 7 days. A typical begomovirus-like symptoms characterized by chlorotic specks on leaves, curling and malformation of leaves, severe reduction in leaf size, partial or complete sterility were seen on infected plants.
