Abstract
During 1950 and 1951 serious epidemics of rust on maize were reported from West Africa. It was found that these outbreaks were not caused by the common, almost cosmopolitan,rust Puccinia sorghi, which is not known to cause serious loss, but by a species until then known only in the warmer parts of America. This rust, Puccinia poLysora, does not apparently cause severe damage in the countries where it is endemic but on reaching West Africa it gave rise to outbreaks far exceeding in severity those caused by the common maize rust.
