Reduction of Forage Yield of Siratro by Rhizoctonia solani Foliar Blight. R. M. Sonoda, Associate Professor, University of Florida, IFAS Agricultural Research Center, Fort Pierce 33450. Plant Dis. 64:667. Copyright 1980 American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-64-667.

Rhizoctonia solani foliar blight reduced total forage yield of Siratro (Macroptilium atropurpureum) by about 67%. Foliage yield was reduced by about 80% and stem yield by 50%. Foliar sprays of benomyl and chlorothalonil controlled the disease.
