Abstract

Isolations of Verticillium albo-atrum from olive trees in Tulare County indicated that the T-l strain was most often associated with severe verticillium wilt in Manzaniilo and Sevillano varieties. T-l was also associated with severe wilt in Acala cotton in Tulare and several adjacent counties. The SS-4 strain, which causes only mild symptoms in Acala cotton varieties, was isolated from olive trees and was a relatively mild pathogen in the Manzanillo olive variety. These results indicate that the T-l strain is a major factor in the severe wilt problem in both cotton and olives in Tulare County.
