Cercospora leaf spot of fig

Cercospora fici

Initially, leaf spots are reddish brown, angular to irregular in shape. Upon enlargement, spots show a tan center and a dark brown margin, with a slight, diffuse yellow halo. Individual leaf spots are up to 8 mm across and may coalesce. Under favorable conditions for disease development (i.e., summer rains), the fungus spreads rapidly and infects the foliage. Severe infection can result in leaf drop.
