Informacion para los propietarios: Cancro Citrico (PP298)

Figure 5. Lesiones marrones elevadas de cancro en fruta con unos particulares m├írgenes prominentes empapados de agua.El cancro cítrico es una enfermedad introducida en Florida y es muy perjudicial económicamente para la industria comercial. La enfermedad no está presente en todas las regiones tropicales y subtropicales productoras de cítricos donde el cancro cítrico puede ser problemático, por lo tanto, las restricciones para exportar fruta con cancro cítrico son muy estrictas. Esta enfermedad también concierne a los propietarios, no solo por sus efectos en la industria económica, sino también porque es altamente contagiosa y la mayoría de la fruta contagiada en un árbol muy afectado se cae de éste prematuramente.

Citrus Diseases Exotic to Florida: Citrus Yellow Mosaic (PP293)

Figure 1. Mosaic symptoms induced by Citrus yellow mosaic virus on the leaves of 'Sathgudi' sweet orange. Citrus yellow mosaic is an important viral disease in India, where it causes significant yield reduction. In some groves, infection rate may be as high as 70%. CYMV induces a bright yellow mottling or vein flecking that persists in mature leaves. Yields are sharply reduced in chronically infected ‘Sathgudi’ sweet orange trees in India, and fruit may also show mosaic symptoms. This 2-page fact sheet was written by K.-R. Chung and R. H. Brlansky, and published by the UF Department of Plant Pathology, February 2012.
