Abstract

First record of Puccinia psidii on Eucalyptus globulus and E. viminalis in Brazil.

Abstract

A severe attack of Puccinia psidii was observed in commercial plantations of Eucalyptus globulus and E. viminalis in the Guaiba-RS, Brazil on July 2000. The disease severity was highly variable among plants of both species. Hybrids of E. viminalis were apparently more susceptible than the pure species.
