Macrophomina phaseolina (MP) is a necrotrophic fungus that causes charcoal rot disease in sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. The host resistance and susceptibility mechanisms for this disease are poorly understood. Here, the transcriptional and biochemical aspects of the oxidative stress and antioxidant system of charcoal rot resistant and susceptible sorghum genotypes in response to MP inoculation were investigated. RNA sequencing revealed 96 differentially expressed genes between resistant...

Glutathione and its related enzymes play an integral role in cellular detoxification processes and redox buffering. A genome wide transcriptome profiling was conducted through RNA sequencing to investigate the dynamics of glutathione and related enzymes in sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench in response to Macrophomina phaseolina (MP) infection. Compared to mock inoculated control treatment, MP significantly upregulated the glutathione synthetase, glutamate cysteine ligase (involved in glutathione biosy...

Lipids are involved in central metabolic processes and confer basic configuration to cellular and subcellular membranes. Lipids also play a role in determining the outcome of plant-pathogen interactions. Lipid based links that delineate either host resistance or susceptibility against necrotrophic microorganisms are poorly investigated and described. Macrophomina phaseolina (MP) is an important necrotrophic fungus which causes diseases in over 500 plant species including charcoal rot in sorghum....

Abstract Globally, stalk rots are among the highest priority grain sorghum ( Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) diseases. This study examined the variation of leaf chlorophyll index and photosystem II quantum yield (Fv/Fm ratio) of sorghum genotypes after inoculation with two stalk rot fungi. In 2014, 2015, two resistant and two susceptible sorghum genotypes were evaluated in the field. Fusarium thapsinum (FT) and Macrophomina phaseolina (MP) are fungal pathogens that cause Fusarium stalk rot and char...

Fungicide use in the United States to manage soybean diseases has increased in recent years. The ability of fungicides to reduce disease-associated yield losses varies greatly depending on multiple factors. Nonetheless, historical data are useful to understand the broad sense and long-term trends related to fungicide use practices. In the current study, the relationship between estimated soybean yield losses due to selected foliar diseases and foliar fungicide use was investigated using annual d...

ABSTRACT Soybean (Glycine max L. Merrill) is a key commodity for United States agriculture. Here we analyze the economic impacts of 23 common soybean diseases in 28 soybean-producing states in the U.S., from 1996 to 2016. From 1996 to 2016, the total estimated economic loss due to soybean diseases in the U.S. was 81.39 billion, with 8.98 billion and $12.41 billion accounting for the northern and southern U.S. losses, respectively. Across states and years, soybean cyst nematode, charcoal rot, ...

The Western Ethiopian region harbors a unique set of sorghum germplasm adapted to conditions not conventional to sorghums grown in other parts of the world. Accessions from the region possess unique resistance to multiple leaf and grain diseases. This study is aimed at exploring the extent of genetic variation and population structure among accessions of this region. A total of 123 accessions comprising 111 from Western Ethiopia (62 from Asosa and 49 from Pawe) and 12 U.S. adapted lines were gen...
