Abstract:

Colletotrichum musae inciting margin leaf blight of banana was isolated using the infected samples showing typical symptoms. The changes in growth and sporulation of the obtained culture when exposed to different abiotic factors such as media, hydrogen ion concentration and light were recorded to check their influence on fungal development. Out of the ten media tested to study the cultural characteristics of the pathogen, potato dextrose agar, oat meal agar and PDA fortified with host leaf extract were found to be the best media supporting the maximum colony diameter and sporulation of the organism followed by V8 juice agar. Alternate cycles of 12 hours light and 12 hours darkness as well as the pH regimes of 6.5 and 7.0 were also favoured abundant growth and sporulation of C. musae.
