Fungi from the Sclerotiniaceae family cause various plant diseases and typically form hard dark or brightly colored structures (sclerotia).
Symptoms of infected plants are premature yellowing, dieback, wilting of older leaves, and stunting of plants, followed by death of all foliage and sometimes root rot. Unlike Botrytis species, S. cepivorum does not produce spores to spread and establish disease.
