Three new races of Bremia lactucae, Bl: 38EU, Bl: 39EU and Bl: 40EU identified and denominated in Europe
Bremia lactucae, or downy mildew, is a common plant disease in lettuce. This fungus can have a major impact on lettuce cultivation. Bremia lactucae, the causal agent of downy mildew in lettuce, is genetically very variable. Even within one lettuce production field, several races may be present.
The IBEB-EU evaluated Bremia lactucae isolates found in Europe in 2021 and 2022 and concluded that three candidate isolates provided consistent test results. The IBEB-EU decided to denominate these variants as Bl: 38EU, Bl: 39EU and Bl: 40EU.
