Thielaviopsis Trunk Rot of Palm

Link: Download
Category: Palm Resources

A trunk rot condition caused by the fungus Thielaviopsis paradoxa. The condition generally causes the trunk to collapse on itself, or the canopy to fall off the trunk, both without warning. Only fresh trunk wounds will become infected, and apart from “stem bleeding,” there may be no symptoms prior to the collapse of the palm.
