Cinerea lesion on a tuber. 32 D ISEASES , D ISORDERS AND P ESTS OF P OTATOES G REY M OULD Status of the disease B. cinerea has a wide host range and infects many types of vegetable, fruit and ornamental plants worldwide. In general, grey mould is not an economically important disease of potatoes. However, it can contribute to poor crop growth and the establishment of other diseases. Grey mould can also contribute to difficulties in assessing proper disease management strategies, since its symptoms are similar to those of other diseases such as late blight (see page 48).

Eumartii occurs in the root elongation zone and may be enhanced where nematodes are also attacking the roots. The pathogen spreads up the vascular tissue, often in the form of microconidia. Wilting is a result of blocking of the vascular tissue. Infection of stems by F. eumartii can also occur from infected mother tubers/seed pieces. By contrast, F. javanicum only occurs from infected mother tubers. Inoculum can be introduced to a location by planting contaminated seed or where soil containing resting spores is spread on farm machinery, by wind and by irrigation, etc.
