First record of Glomerella acutata on Lupinus luteus in Lithuania

In 2001, Glomerella acutata (anamorph Colletotrichum acutatum – EU Annexes) was identified for the first time in Lithuania on Lupinus luteus. The fungus was found at 2 localities (infecting 2 ha and 4 ha in the Ukmergė and Utena municipalities, respectively). In affected plots, the disease spread was very rapid and caused the death of the crop within 2 weeks. However, the fungus was not detected on strawberry or other crops in Lithuania.
The situation of Glomerella acutata in Lithuania can be described as follows: Present, first found in 2001 in two municipalities (Ukmergė, Utena), only on Lupinus luteus.
