Abstract:

Macrophomina phaseolina is an important pathogen in the sesame growing areas of Tamilnadu and is prevalent in the arid regions of the world. Studies were carried out to isolate M. phaseolina cultures and analyze their colony morphology, pathogenicity, and effect of culture media and pH conditions on the growth pattern was assessed. Among the five isolates, M. phaseolina isolate 4 was the most virulent isolate. The maximum growth of pathogen was observed in potato dextrose agar and potato dextrose broth. The pathogen grew well in neutral to slightly acidic conditions.
