Elsinoe scab of South African Proteaceae is caused by Elsinoe spp. The disease causes scabby lesions on stems, leaves and flower heads and heavy infection can cause twisting or splitting of stems. Pruning of affected plants for disease control and/or the disease itself can reduce production and in some cases kill the host plants. The scabby lesions can render the cut flower product unmarketable or marketable only at a reduced price.
