Many diseases are caused by very tiny living, This field guide has been prepared to help you things called pathogens Pathogens are so tiny. to that you cannot see them even with the aid, recognize common cassava diseases and of hand lenses Examples of pathogens are vi. specify their causes ruses bacteria and fungi When a pathogen. specify how the diseases damage cassava attacks a cassava plant it multiplies and. plants spreads inside or on the plant As it spreads. identify the sources of cassava diseases it destroys the plant The plant will show signs. and understand how cassava diseases spr symptoms of attack Damage symptoms of. ead and cassava diseases appear on the leaves Fig, combine appropriate practices to control ure 1 stems Figure 2 and storage roots.

Some other diseases which you may notice in,cassava are caused by nonliving things Ex. amples of such diseases are wilting due to Figure 1 Cassava plant damaged by Figure 2 Cankers of cassava. drought and poor plant growth because of cassava mosaic disease anthracnose disease on stem. poor soils,Figure 3 Cassava storage roots damaged by cassava. brown streak disease,Disease Control in Cassava Farms.

IPM Field Guide,Stem and root diseases,Cassava brown streak disease. Cassava brown streak disease is caused by a,virus Presently the disease is reported only. from cassava growing regions in East and,Southern Africa. Damage symptoms Damage symptoms of,cassava brown streak disease appear on the. leaves stems and storage roots of cassava,plants On the leaves the disease appears as.
patches of yellow areas mixed with normal,green color Figure 18 The yellow patches. are more prominent on mature leaves than, on young leaves The damaged leaves do not Figure 18 Cassava leaves with chlorotic pale. become distorted in shape as occurs with patches of cassava brown streak disease. leaves damaged by cassava mosaic disease,Figure 1 On the stems the disease appears. as dark brown streaks Figure 19 with,dead spots on leaf scars These streaks are. most prominent on upper green portions of,the stems The diseased plants may show.

Method of spread The main sources of the,virus that causes cassava brown streak are. cassava plants with the disease The disease is,spread through the planting of stem cuttings. from diseased plants The virus is also believed,to be spread from plant to plant by insects.
