  • The oomycete Phytophthora parasitica is a very broad host range pathogen that causes destructive diseases of a wide variety of crop plants including tomato, pepper, potato, tobacco, cacao, banana, citrus, walnut, almond, a wide variety of nursery and ornamental plants, and forest ecosystems. It is a soilborne pathogen with a wide range of host plants and represents most species in the genus Phytophthora[1][2].
