HNS 196 - Identification of inoculum sources for the newly emerged Peronospora causing downy mildew on aquilegia

Start Date: 
01/10/2015

Aquilegia downy mildew is caused by a species of Peronospora which is currently unnamed. The first occurrence of the disease appears to be on a nursery in 2011, with more widespread reports in gardens during 2013. Little or no work has been published on the disease and as a result it is difficult to establish from the literature why the disease has become more prevalent. This project aims to establish the main sources of inoculum for the disease on nurseries
