Box , Sekondi. During the s, a series of similar symposia had been held under the auspices of the loosely-constituted "International Council on Lethal Yellowing" (ICL Y). These were the years when the MLO cause for L Y was first proposed, a vector was found, the disease was racing across mainland Florida, USA and it was suspected of having jumped to Cozumel. Lethal yellowing (LY) is a fatal disease of coconut palm (Cocos nucifera L.) and at least 35 other palm species in the Americas (Harrison et al. ), and has killed millions of. The Atlantic coast of Guatemala runs between Belize and Honduras; two countries in which coconut lethal yellowing (LY) disease is highly active (Harrison et al., ).Coconut palms (Cocos nucifera, Atlantic tall ecotype) with symptoms indicative of LY (Harrison & Jones, ), including premature nutfall, necrosis of immature inflorescences, progressive frond yellowing and eventual .
A comprehensive review of past lethal yellowing research would be largely irrelevant; there are many earlier theories, hypotheses and blind alleys that are not of concern. Several comprehensive. Lethal yellowing-like diseases, also called Lethal Yellowing Type Syndromes, Lethal Declines or Coconut Lethal Yellowing comprise of a complex of phytoplasma-associated coconut diseases found around the world (Figure 1, Table 1) that result in yellowing, wilting and death of palms. Currently the coconut industry is severely affected by coconut lethal yellowing disease (CLYD). It causes premature fruit fall and infected trees die within 6 months of infection. The quality of the coconuts is affected by the disease and there is a corresponding decline in annual yields. The disease has been confirmed in the central and northern. Lethal yellowing is a devastating disease that affects coconuts and about 35 other palm species. The disease is caused by a phytoplasma, which is a bacterium found in the sap of the coconut palm. It multiplies in the sap and through the multiplication and the living of this organism in the sap.
