Abstract
A root-rot disease of tea, caused by the fungus Cylindrocarpon destruclans (Zinss) Scholten, is reported in Kenya for the first time. The disease was found attacking tea plants which, it is thought, are growing under unfavorable soil conditions such as high pH. The fungus readily attacks plants whose roots have been injured.
