Chapter synopsis: Of all the diseases affecting sorghum, root and stalk diseases are among the most damaging and difficult to control. This is due to their hidden nature and the fact that their symptoms often resemble abiotic stressors such as drought or freeze damage. This chapter presents an overview of some of the main bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases affecting sorghum root and stalk, describing their common symptoms, environments and typical effects on yield. In each case, recommendations for effective management of the disease are given, including information regarding tillage practices, fertilizer rates, crop rotation and use of fungicides.
