Club Root of Cabbage

  • Ervin H. Barnes


Club root of cabbage is caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae. Only members of the Cruciferae, the mustard family, such as cabbage, turnip, and rutabaga are susceptible. Infected roots enlarge into club-shaped structures of irregular dimensions. Above-ground parts may be stunted, yellow, and wilted, reflecting the unhealthy structures below. Examine Table 9-1 for a comparison of the characteristics of various kinds of overgrowths caused by different pathogenic agents.
