 en Foliar and Head Diseases of Sorghum
Esele, J.P.


The major foliar and head diseases of sorghum are discussed in this paper. Some, especially anthracnose, leaf blight and grain moulds cause considerable economic losses. Host plant resistance is certainly the most cost-effective means of controlling these diseases. With the advent of biotechnology, opportunities now exist for more accurate diagnosis of disease etiology, and most likely will facilitate breeding for resistance to these diseases.

Le papier passe en revue les maladies foliaires et celles de tete de sorgho. Certaines comme l'anthracnose, la rouille et la moisissure de graines causent des pertes economiques considerables. La resistance est certainement le moyen de controle le plus economique. Avec l'avenement de la biotechnologie, des perspectives existent maintenant pour un diagnostic plus sur de l'etiologie de maladies et plus probablement cela facilitera l'amelioration pour la resistance a ces maladies.
