Abstract:

Ganoderma species are important wood decaying fungi distributed throughout the world. They are diverse in the tropics affecting plantation crops such as coconut, arecanut and oil palm and they also affect ornamental, forest and avenue trees in tropical and temperate areas causing Basal Stem rot/Ganoderma wilt. Basal Stem Rot (BSR), also called Ganoderma wilt in coconut and foot rot in arecanut caused by the different species of Ganoderma is one of the most devastating diseases affecting production and productivity of palms. This review aims to give a broad overview on occurrence and distribution; etiology; identification of species; virulence analysis;   disease development; early detection and latest developments with respect integrated disease management aspects of Ganoderma wilt and to highlight interesting findings as well as promising applications.
