Abstract:

Mushrooms contain various bio active potential including antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial property. But very limited work has been done on the productive utilization of the antimicrobial properties for plant disease management practices. The current study is formulated to harness the antimicrobial potential of Ganoderma lucidum, Auricularia polytricha, Lentinus edodes, Coprinus sinensis, Schizophyllum commune, Pleurotus florida, Trichloma mastukae, Calocybe indica,Volvariella volvacea, Fomes spp and Pycnoporus sanguineus against Colletotrichum gloeosporioides causing post-harvest anthracnose disease of mango.Results from dual culture test revealed that the Ganoderma lucidum, Auricularia polytricha, Pycnoporus sanguineus and Pleurotus florida showed inhibition of radial mycelial growth with inhibition percentage of 56.3 to 70.77 %.Although the mushrooms screened exhibited varied degree of inhibition of mycelial growth of pathogen, A. polytricha and G.lucidum performed well and the crude cell free culture filtrates from G. lucidum and A. polytricha tested at 20th day showed maximum inhibition of 36.33% and 47.11% of mycelial growth of C.gloeosporioides by G. lucidum and A. polytricha respectively.These results predicted that the cell free culture filtrate collected contained some antimicrobial compounds that would have been responsible for the antimicrobial effect and offers better scope for development of mycomolecules based fungicide against plant diseases.
