Pears brown rot

The disease, also called pear mummy, is not common in pear orchards in Iran. Specimens of pests infected with this pathogen were found in Guilan province and Noshahr province and after investigation, Molinia frutigena was identified. The sexual form of this fungus called Monilinia fructigena has not been found on pears in Iran. The disease is similar to moniliac or brown rot of apples.
