Needle blight of pine

Pseudocercospora pini-densiflorae

Needle blight of pine (Pseudocercospora pini-densiflorae) is a fungal pathogen. It is a native of Asia and Africa.

M. gibsonii causes a serious needle blight of both exotic and native pines, particularly at the later nursery stage, and has become a major obstacle to production of pine seedlings.
