Sclerotinia stem an fruits rot

- classification : Fungi, Ascomycota, Leotiomycetes, Leotiomycetidae, Helotiales, Sclerotiniaceae

This ascomycete rather polyphagous is widely distributed throughout the world. It seems capable of attacking many Cucurbitaceae, including melon, both on seedlings and on adult plants. The economic losses recorded in some countries are sometimes very significant.

In France , sclerotiniosis is a disease that can be observed frequently on melon, both under shelter and in the open.
