  • Abstract:

    Charcoal rot was first reported in South Africa when found on sunflower in 1969, but had already been detected on maize and sorghum by that time. The first incidence of this disease on soya beans was reported in 1982. Maize and sorghum are frequently planted in rotation with sunflower and soya beans.
