Abstract

Plant disease

Brown rot is a serious disease of citrus, which fortunately has proved to be readily controllable. It attacks both leaves and fruits causing partial or complete defoliation, and a rather characteristic fruit rot. The disease may also affect the bark of citrus trees in the basal trunk region resulting in "collar rot," or as it is sometimes called, brown rot gummosis. This phase of the disease will be referred to later.
