Circular water-soaked lesions occur first on older leaves. These spots eventually turn brown with gray centers and die, and if infection is severe enough, the entire leaf will die.

The fungus can survive in the debris from previous crops and/or weeds. Clean cultivation is important. The disease can be controlled by labelled fungicides.
