Abstract:

Papaya is attacked by several diseases like, anthracnose, powdery mildew, black spot, brown spot and papaya ring spot. Among the emerging diseases in papaya, black spot disease caused by Asperisporium caricae is most lethal. Both leaves and fruit of papaya can be affected by the black leaf spot caused by Asperisporium caricae. The fruits were affected on the surface, reducing the fresh-market value. This disease can affect papaya plants at any stage of their growth. Periods of wet weather may increase the development of the disease. The use of fungicides is the most appropriate management option. This disease has been reported from different parts of the country and is found to be serious in recent years.
