Pg. 60-62 Litchi decline in South Africa – new or old problem?

Litchi decline has been reported in several countries over the past few years. Also in South Africa it seems to be a sporadic problem, associated with several pathogens and probably several predisposing biotic and abiotic factors. Different symptoms and possible causes are discussed with emphasis on recent observations throughout the litchi industry of South Africa. Management and research strategies, which focus on eliminating predisposing factors, are discussed.
