Abstract:

Mango malformation, a century old malady of Mangifera indica, is considered as the major constraints for mango production worldwide. Several reports claimed that Fusarium species particularly Fusarium mangiferae is associated with mango malformation. Salicylic acid is an important signaling molecule that plays crucial role in plant microbial interactions. The present study was conducted to observe in-vitro application of different concentrations of salicylic acid on mycelial growth and conidial germination of two isolates of Fusarium mangiferae. The experimental findings showed that salicylic acid inhibits mycelial growth and conidial germination of two isolates of Fusarium mangiferae more effectively at moderate to high concentrations. The inhibition of mycelial growth of both isolates of Fusarium mangiferae was found to be pH dependent and was more in acidic condition as compared to alkaline condition.
