Abstract:

Copra samples were colllected from local farmers orchard at Dapoli, Ta. Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri (MS). From these collected samples, five fungus pathogens viz., Aspergillus niger, A. fumigates, A. oryzae, Chaetomium spp., and Lasiodiplodia theobromae were isolated, which were used for cultural studies. These were cultured on five different culture media, Potato dextrose agar medium, Malt extract agar medium, Potato carrot agar medium, Sabouraud’s dextrose agar medium and Czapek’s yeast extract agar media. All five media used supported the growth of these five fungi in considerable amount.


Keywords: Aspergillusniger, A. fumigates, A. oryzae, Chaetomium spp., Czapek’s yeast extract agar media
