Boxwood Blight Update: Cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum - Box Blight Pathogen | Plant Pests - Global Travellers | Scoop.it
Boxwood blight has been discovered in the US. Learn how far it has spread and how the horticultural research community is addressing this new plant disease introduction.

Boxwood Blight (Cylindrocladium buxicola or C. pseudonaviculatum) is a new plant disease to the United States, having first been confirmed in the October, 2011. The disease can cause significant defoliation and branch dieback to infected plants. Most of what we know about the disease is from research done in Europe where the disease was first discovered in the early 1990s.

Knapco's insight:

Up to date information is given at Webinar on Boxwood Blight Update: Where they are in US and where they hope to be? In Europe there is not much done in preventing the spread of this new fungus, which is moved by infected plants for planting and it is very difficult to control, once it is established in new area.

Litchfield County Times: Boxwood Blight is the Latest Threat  

“This whole thing exploded onto the scene in Connecticut in October, so it is very new,” said Dr. Douglas.

 

A new threat faces landscapers and property owners in Connecticut with the eruption of a newly identified boxwood blight (Cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum), which threatens to attack and kill thousands of boxwood plants in the region in coming months. The finding of this fungus was also officially recorded by national plant protection services of North Carolina, Connecticut and Virginia.
