CITRUS GUMMOSIS PDF

Citrus Gummosis Why do citrus trees have, in general, an unhealthy appearance? Some citrus trees look unhealthy because of a common fungal disease called gummosis. Such trees are sparsely foliated with much twig dieback. Trees become infected when fungal spores on the ground splash onto the trunk. If the trunk remains wet for many hours, whether from rain droplets or irrigation, infection takes place.

Read on to learn more about citrus gummosis problems and what you can do to prevent the disease from spreading. Citrus Gummosis Information What causes citrus foot rot? Citrus foot rot is a disease caused by Phytophthora, an aggressive fungus that lives in the soil.

Phytophthora requires moisture to move to trees via rain, irrigation, or whenever spores splash on tree trunks. Trees can develop citrus root rot symptoms very quickly in rainy weather and cool, moist climates.

Citrus Foot Rot Symptoms Citrus foot rot symptoms include yellowing foliage and leaf dieback, along with reduced yield and smaller fruit. The water soaked, brownish or black lesions spread around the trunk, eventually girdling the tree. This may occur rapidly, or it may continue for several years, depending on environmental conditions. Managing Citrus Gummosis Problems Early detection of citrus foot rot is critical, but the initial signs may be difficult to spot.

Here are some tips for managing gummosis of citrus: Ensure the soil drains well. You may need to consider planting trees on berms to improve drainage. Look closely at the bark of new trees before purchasing. Inspect citrus trees for symptoms several times per year. Water citrus trees properly, using a drip system to avoid overwatering.

Avoid irrigating trees with drained water, as Phytophthora can be moved from one area to another in soil runoff. Limit mulching under citrus trees. Mulch slows drying of the soil, thus contributing to excess moisture and the development of citrus foot rot.
