Abstract:

Studies on effect of pH levels, temperature and growth media on growth of Botryodiplodia theobromae causing longitudinal splitting of bark and wood disease on acid lime revealed that higher dry mycelial weight of the fungus was obtained at 25 to 300C which was considered as optimum for the vegetative growth. Among the different media tested Potato Dextrose Broth (PDB) supported for maximum dry mycelial weight followed by Richards Broth (RB), Czapek Dox Broth (CPB) and Czapek Dox Broth (CDB) medium. Among the different media used PDB gave maximum dry mycelial weight at pH ranged from 5.0 to 6.0 followed by CPB, CDB and RB media.


Keywords: Botryodiplodia theobromae, Longitudinal Splitting of Bark and Wood Disease (LSPWD), Growth.
