A Soybean Disease Caused by Neocosmospora vasinfecta. D. V. Phillips, Assistant Professor, University of Georgia College of Agriculture Experiment Stations, Georgia Station, Experiment 30212; Phytopathology 62:612-615. Accepted for publication 7 January 1972. DOI: 10.1094/Phyto-62-612.

Neocosmospora vasinfecta, isolated from soybean plants with internal stem browning, caused similar symptoms in inoculated soybean plants. It invaded the pith extensively, but did not invade vascular tissues and apparently caused little damage to the host. Internal stem browning was induced in bean and cowpea, but not in plants of 11 other genera.
