      Oddino, Claudio; Giordano, Francisco; Paredes, Juan Andrés; Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Giuggia, Jorge; Rago, Alejandro Mario (Facultad de Agronomía y Veterinaria, Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto, 2018-07)
      Las enfermedades son el principal problema sanitario del maní (Arachis hypogaea L.), siendo viruela (Cercospora arachidicola Hori y Cercosporidium personatum (Berck. & Curt Deighton)) la más importante del mundo, y la que ...
    • Efficacy of fungicides against peanut smut in Argentina 

      Paredes, Juan Andrés; Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Oddino, Claudio; Monguillot, Joaquin Humberto; Rago, Alejandro Mario; Edwards Molina, Juan Pablo (Elsevier, 2020-09-28)
      Peanut smut, caused by Thecaphora frezii, increased its incidence and prevalence in the main growing region of Argentina in the last decade becoming the main peanut disease. Despite this fact, growers continue producing ...
    • Impact of yellow leaf virus on sugarcane commercial fields 

      Asinari, Florencia; Perez Gomez, Sergio Gregorio; Easdale, C.; Rago, Alejandro Mario; Balzarini, Monica; Cafrune, Eva Encarnacion (Springer, 2020-11-17)
      A survey of Sugarcane yellow leaf virus (SCYLV) was conducted in northern Argentina in 2015 and 2016 using tissue blot immunoassay (TBIA). Results showed plant infection rates of 2.2–86.7% in sugarcane commercial fields ...
    • Mitogenome and Nuclear-encoded Fungicide-target Genes of Thecaphora frezii - Causal Agent of Peanut Smut 

      Arias, Renee S.; Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Massa, Alicia N.; Scheffler, Brian E.; Sobolev, Victor S.; Lamb, Marshall C.; Duke, Mary V.; Simpson, Sheron A.; Conforto, Erica Cinthia; Paredes, Juan Andrés; Soave, Juan H.; Buteler, Mario I.; Rago, Alejandro Mario (Longdom Publishing, 2019-08-28)
      Background: Thecaphora frezii Carranza and Lindquist causes smut disease in peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) resulting in up to 35% yield losses. Fungicides have shown ineffective in controlling the disease; whereas research ...
    • Molecular detection of Thecaphora frezzi in peanut (Arachis Hypogaea L.) seeds 

      Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Conforto, Erica Cinthia; Fernandez, Franco Daniel; Paredes, Juan Andrés; Rago, Alejandro Mario (2016)
      Thecaphora frezii is the causal agent of peanut smut, important disease in the Argentine production area. The pathogen can be dispersed by kernels, through surface contamination or small lesions. The aim of this work was ...
    • Molecular sequence data of Thecaphora frezii affecting peanut crops in Argentina 

      Conforto, Erica Cinthia; Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Fernandez, Franco Daniel; Marinelli, Adriana; Oddino, Claudio; Rago, Alejandro Mario (Springer, 2013-12)
      In Argentina, Thecaphora frezii is the causal agent of peanut smut, causing severe yield losses in peanut growing areas. In this work sequence data of the large ribosomal subunit (28S rDNA) of four T. frezii specimens from ...
    • Peanut Smut : from an emerging disease to an actual threat to Argentine Peanut production 

      Rago, Alejandro Mario; Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Paredes, Juan Andrés; Edwards Molina, Juan Pablo; Conforto, Erica Cinthia; Bisonard, Eduardo Matias; Oddino, Claudio (2017-03)
      The center of origin of peanut is located in South America, specifically in southeastern Bolivia and northwestern Argentina, where its parental species are found in wild habits. Even though Argentina is only the seventh ...
    • Relationship between incidence and severity of peanut smut and its regional distribution in the main growing region of Argentina 

      Paredes, Juan Andrés; Edwards Molina, Juan Pablo; Cazon, Luis Ignacio; Asinari, Florencia; Monguillot, Joaquín Humberto; Morichetti, Sergio A.; Rago, Alejandro Mario; Torres, Adriana M. (Springer, 2021-10-20)
      Peanut smut, caused by the soil-borne pathogen Thecaphora frezii, has increased in incidence in the main Argentinian peanut-growing regions. Smut-affected pod transform the kernel into a mass of teliospores, which survive ...
