Abstract:

The present investigations intended to revise the effect of inorganic salts as post-harvest treatment aiming at reduction severity of banana anthracnose, a predominant postharvest disease of banana caused by Colletotrichum musae. Experiments were carried out during 2016 in department of plant pathology, UAS, Dharwad. Four inorganic salts were tested for their efficacy at three concentrations (1, 5 and 10 % w/v) in vitro against Colletotrichum musae and also evaluated post-harvest fruit treatment in vivo viz; Boric acid (HBO3), Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3), Sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), Mono potassium phosphate (K2HPO4) with surfactant. Findings of present study shown that postharvest treatment of banana with Boric acid at 5.0 and 10.0 per cent concentration and Sodium bicarbonate at 10.0 per cent concentration showed maximum disease severity reduction (91.18 %) which was significantly superior to all other salts evaluated in vivo at different tested concentrations.
