Article
Alternaria is one of the main fungal genera affecting the quality of barley grains. In this study, a polyphasic approach was carried out to characterise the Alternaria population infecting different cultivars of barley grains from the major producing regions of Argentina in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Its relationship with Fusarium and correlations...

Aim of study: To report the occurrence of Fusarium graminearum sensu stricto (s.s.) on triticale grains from field samples in Argentina and the potential mycotoxin production for these isolates. Area of study: Buenos Aires province, Argentina Material and methods: A total of 40 samples from different crops (barley, rye, triticale, and wheat) show...
Article
Maize is one of the most important crops in Argentina. This crop can be affected by the presence of different Fusarium species, causing two distinct diseases known as Fusarium ear rot and Gibberella ear rot. In this study, a total of 90 samples from commercial fields of Buenos Aires province in Argentina were collected during the 2015, 2016 and 201...
Article
Background: Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is one of the most important cereals worldwide, and its quality is affected by fungal contamination such as species of the genus Alternaria. No information is available about the occurrence of Alternaria mycotoxins in Argentinean barley grains, which is of concern, because they can be transferred into malt a...

Fusarium head blight (FHB) is one of the most important diseases that occurs in cereal regions worldwide and causes serious economic damage. This disease can be caused by several Fusarium species with Fusarium graminearum sensu stricto being the most common pathogen isolated from several crops. The aim of this study was to report the occurrence of...
Article
Fusarium poae has been considered as a minor species among those that cause the FHB disease but in recent years several researchers have documented a high frequency of occurrence in several crops such as wheat and barley. Evaluating the interaction between Fusarium poae with the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana will contribute to the knowledge abou...

One of the most important genera able to develop diseases in cereals is Fusarium which not only produces losses by the fungal presence but also mycotoxin production harmful to human and animal consumers. In the environment, plants are continuously threatened by abiotic and biotic stresses. Among the latter, pathogens gained importance mainly due to...
Article
Members of the Fusarium graminearum species complex (FGSC), such as F. graminearum and F. asiaticum are the main cause of Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) of wheat and barley worldwide. In this study, 117 FGSC isolates obtained from commercial barley grain produced in Argentina (n=43 isolates), Brazil (n=35), and Uruguay (n=39) were identified to species...
Article
Fusarium poae is one of the Fusarium species isolated from grains associated with Fusarium head blight (FHB), whose occurrence has increased in the last years. In this study, a total of 105 F. poae isolates from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Switzerland and Uruguay were evaluated...

Fusarium poae has been considered as a minor species among those that cause Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) disease but in recent years several researchers have documented a high frequency of occurrence of this species. In this study, a total of 173 F. poae isolates from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxe...

The Silences of the Archives, the Reknown of the Story. The Martin Guerre affair has been told many times since Jean de Coras and Guillaume Lesueur published their stories in 1561. It is in many ways a perfect intrigue with uncanny resemblance, persuasive deception and a surprizing end when the two Martin stood face to face, memory to memory, befor...
Article
One of the most important diseases in cereal crops is Fusarium head blight, being Fusarium graminearum the main etiological agent. This fungus has the ability to produce a wide spectrum and quantity of toxins, especially deoxynivalenol (DON). During the last crop season (2012-2013) the climatic conditions favored Fusarium colonization. The objectiv...
Article
Fusarium head blight is a fungal disease caused by a complex of Fusarium species on cereals, such as barley and wheat. It has economic impacts due to yield reductions and mycotoxin contamination. As barley production has increased considerably in the last 5 years in Argentina, a survey was conducted for identifying Fusarium species associated with...

Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), one of the most widely grown winter cereal crops in Argentina, is primarily grown for use as malted barley for the beer industry. In December 2010, a survey of fungi was conducted in a barley (cv. Shakira) seed lot in a field located in Tres Arroyos, Buenos Aires, Argentina. A sample of 400 seeds was surface sterilized...

Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), the most widely grown winter cereal crop in Argentina, is grown on 5 million ha. Fusarium species affect yield and grain quality because of mycotoxins. In December 2009, a screen of fungal species in wheat seeds from a field in Azul, Buenos Aires, Argentina was conducted. Four hundred seeds were surface sterilized by d...
