Abstract:

Fusarium, Colletotrichum and Penicillium spp. are the well-known pathogen that causes post-harvest plant diseases of the crops. Mainly it influences the fruit crop which plays the most important role in the economy of the many fruit-producing countries, so for the management of these post-harvest pathogens, it should need a specific management strategy. So, keeping in view the study was investigated in the laboratory of the Dept. of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, BHU, Varanasi. These pathogens were tested against thirteen different phylloplane yeast isolates by dual culture technique. Yeast species mainly compete with the pathogen for nutrients and after contact with a pathogen, it leads to cell wall perforation due to producing lytic enzymes as well as acts as the host defense activator in the plant. Herein were observed that isolates Y4 (33.3%) and Y6 (33.3%) showed maximum and Y13 (4.4%) minimum percent inhibition against Colletotrichum spp. while maximum and minimum percent inhibition was showed by isolate Y3 (40%) and Y5 (4.4%) against Fusarium spp. respectively. Isolate Y4 (51.1%) and Y7 (51.1%) showed maximum inhibition as compared to isolate Y11 (35.5%) that showed minimum inhibition but no per cent inhibition was observed by isolate Y10 (0%)  against Penicillium spp.
