Latorre has worked on Verticillium wilts of grape, avocado, and raspberry; mycotoxins of grapes and their resulting wines; and bacterial diseases, most importantly those caused by Pseudomonas syringae on stone fruits but also Xanthomonas juglandis on walnuts.

He has mentored over undergraduate students and has directed the thesis projects of nearly 20 graduate students, many of whose results have been incorporated into his technical reports planttas research publications. Wilcox, he identified six species of Phytophthora affecting raspberry in Chile, including Plantaz fragariae var.

His studies on disease control have included efficacy and specific properties of various fungicides, and cultivadaa development of fungicide resistance, especially in Botrytis cinerea on table grapes. Among other research studies, he determined the role of several species of DiaportheBotryosphaeriaceae, Pestalotiopsis and Truncatella as causal agents of canker diseases affecting blueberries in Chile.

Over the course of his career, Dr.

Latorre has investigated a wide range of diseases affecting pome fruits, stone fruits, tree nuts, berry crops, kiwifruit, and grapes. Plant Disease Management Reports. He determined and characterized Botrytis strains resistant to dicarboxamide, anilinopyrimidine and carboximide fungicides in Chile, a finding which served as an early warning to farmers, suggesting that the exclusive use of these fungicides was potentially unsafe for long term control of Botrytis bunch rot.

In recent years, Dr. He served as President of the Chilean Phytopathological Society from In addition to documenting numerous diseases in his country for the first time, he has conducted and published many additional in-depth studies on disease etiology, epidemiology, and control.


Over the course of his career, he has taught the undergraduate courses in introductory plant pathology and diseases of fruit crops, diagnostic-epidemiology- laforre and fungicide management for graduate students at his university.
