verticillium wilt disease severity
VWDS
verticillium wilt disease severity is the percentage of relevant host tissues or organ covered by symptom or lesion or damaged by the disease. Severity results from the number and size of the lesions.
verticillium wilt disease severity
Observe incidence of verticillium wilt disease, usually recorded as the frequency of damaged individuals or their parts; commonly the portion of plant units diseased. Proportion of plants (leaves, etc.) diseased or the number diseased out of N plants (leaves, etc.) observed.
