Abstract:

A leaf spot disease of Yucca plants is prevalent in India. They are native to the hot and dry parts of America and the Caribbean. Yucca is similar to agave but often forms trunks and typically has more numerous, thinner, leathery leaves with a smaller terminal spine. Yucca leaves range in color from deep green to pale blue, and leaves may be striped in shades of white, cream, yellow, or chartreuse. They are also used in pharmaceutical industries for medicinal properties When in flower yucca produces large, upright panicles (flower clusters) of white, bell-shaped flowers. Symptomatic can be seen on the upper and lower side of leaves like to be small and circular spots with concentric rings at first which later became irregular lesions. These circular spots were dark black coloured with necrotic region. Purified fungal suspension (1 x105 cfu/ml) was sprayed on healthy plants for the confirmation of pathogencity test. Koch’s Postulates were established. This fungus was identified as Alternaria alternata and is the first report of ‘leaf spot disease’ on this host from India.
