Interpretive Summary: Aphanomyces is an economically important genus of Oomycete pathogens that affect a wide range of hosts including crops such as alfalfa, bean, lentil, pea and sugarbeet. This proceeding summarizes scientific contributions from a recently held workshop on the genus Aphanomyces that emphasized the importance of these pathogens on legumes and sugarbeet. The Second International Aphanomyces Workshop was held in Pasco, WA, on June 17 and 18, 2003. This workshop included scientists from private industry, university, government, and international institutions. This proceeding covers two important Aphanomyces species, namely A. euteiches and A. coccineus, that cause disease on several hosts such as alfalfa, bean, pea and sugarbeet. The workshop covered a broad range of subject matter including disease management, host-parasite interactions, epidemiology, population genetics, breeding for resistance, and economic impact. Over forty participants from France, New Zealand, California, Idaho, Illinois, North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin attended the workshop.

Technical Abstract: Aphanomyces is an economically important genus of Oomycete pathogens that affect a wide range of hosts including on both animals (fish and crayfish) and plants (alfalfa, bean, lentil, pea and sugarbeet). This proceeding summarizes scientific contributions from a recently held workshop on the genus Aphanomyces that emphasized the importance of these pathogens on legumes and sugarbeet. The Second International Aphanomyces Workshop was held in Pasco, WA, on June 17 and 18, 2003. This workshop included scientists from private industry, university, government, and international institutions. This proceeding covers two important Aphanomyces species, that cause disease on several hosts such as edible legumes (A. euteiches attacks: alfalfa, bean, pea) and sugarbeet (A. coccineus). Subject matter covered ranged from disease management, host-parasite interactions, epidemiology, population genetics, breeding for resistance, and economic impact. Over forty participants from France, New Zealand, California, Idaho, Illinois, North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin attended the workshop.
