Powdery mildew (Oidium anacardii) onset and development on flowering panicles of cashew clones (Anacardium occidentale L.) as a measure of clone resistance
The development of powdery mildew (Oidium anacardii Noack) infection on the panicles of cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.) demonstrated differences in disease severity between clones that were rated in the field as susceptible and resistant and (or) tolerant. There were indications of a slower onset of disease infection on panicles of resistant cashew clones during the early stages of disease development. The effect of fungicide treatment was also shown to have a significant control over disease development.
