Abstract
A new plant disease new in Kenya was first reported about ten years ago. The disease threatens Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum), an important fodder crop for the smallholder dairy sector. The fungal pathogen was identified as a smut fungus, Vstilago kamerunensis Sydow and Sydow. Infected plants are characterised by the production of smutted inflorescences, and are more or less severely reduced in biomass.
