The integrated management of bud rot disease and Phytophthora palmivora in oil palm

Code: 9781838794842
Gerardo Martínez, José I. Sanz, Gabriel Torres, Greicy Sarria, Diana Velez, Franky Zuñiga, Yuri Mestizo and Francia Varón, Colombian Oil Palm Research Center – Cenipalma, Columbia

Chapter synopsis: This chapter provides an overview of research on oil palm bud rot disease which severely affects palm oil production in Central and South America. The chapter reviews the approaches adopted in identifying the causative agent and managing the disease. The chapter describes recent research undertaken by the Colombian Oil Palm Research Centre (Cenipalma) to show Phytophthora palmivora as the causative agent of bud rot, as well as strategies it has developed for controlling its spread throughout oil palm stands. The chapter shows how an understanding of disease biology is critical for developing a successful integrated pest management programme.
