Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type)
Description: Plants may wilt or "flop" a few hours after a rain, especially in areas with poor soil drainage. Yellowing, starting with the lower leaves, may follow if the flooded conditions persist. The lower leaves may eventually die, while the bud remains green. Apparent injury may be more severe on older than on younger plants. Deep roots may be killed, so the tobacco develops a shallow root system. Partial drowning may result in stunted plants and premature flowering.
