Abstract:

Fungi associated with dried copra causing deterioration of copra and copra oil were investigated under present investigation during 2017-18. For this experiment, the infected copra samples were collected from local farmers (near by Dr. Balasaheb Sawnt Konkna Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli) and Regional Coconut Research Station (RCRS), Bhatye (Ratnagiri) in Konkan region of Maharashtra State, INDIA. Fungi isolated from copra samples were identified on the basis of morphological and cultural characters as Aspergillus fumigates, Chaetomium spp., Lasiodiplodia theobromae, A. oryzae and A.niger. The identifications were confirmed by Chief Mycologist, MACS- Agharkar Research Institute, (ARI) Pune.
