Questionable and Poorly Described Diseases

Kikuyu Yellows

A phycomycete resembling a species of Achlya was isolated from leaves of kikuyugrass (Pennisetum clandestinum) in Australia. Leaves become uniformly yellow with brown flecking. Roots become yellowish brown and rotted. No information is available concerning its pathogenicity to pearl millet or other Pennisetum species (Wong 1975).
