Abstract

Surveys of nurseries and plantations of Eucalyptus species were conducted within Lao PDR in 2009. A range of pathogens were isolated including species within Phytophthora, Pythium, Fusarium, Colletotrichum, Neofusicoccum, Lasiodiplodia, Pilidiella, Calonectria, Cryptosporiopsis, Corticium and Teratosphaeria. Some diseases caused significant defoliation and loss of stock within nurseries and plantations. The presence of these diseases in combination with a changing climate poses many challenges for the future sustainable and profitable management of plantations in Lao PDR.
