Fusarium wilt raises its head in mungbean crops.. Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) plant pathologist Lisa Kelly said the testing of affected plants would help researchers identify the strain of Fusarium wilt responsible for the infections which is critical for the effective on-going management of the disease... "Two Fusarium species have consistently been isolated from affected plants - F. oxysporum and F. solani - and both species have been associated with the disease in mungbean and other bean or Vigna species outside of Australia...
