Abstract:

Maize Post flowering stalk rot causing caused by Fusarium verticillioides is major disease and causing yield loss up to 34 per cent. Different liquid media supporting the growth of the different isolates of fungus was observed. Among the eight-liquid media tested for the dry mycelial weight and sporulation of six isolates of Fusarium stalk rot pathogen (F. verticillioides), Isolate FV-3 yielded highest dry mycelial weight of 787.66mg, followed by FV-2 (647.66mg), FV1(581.00mg), FV-5 (451.00mg), FV-6(421.00mg) and FV-7(277.66mg) in Takahashii’s broth.  Whereas, highest sporulation was seen in Takahashii’s broth, Potato dextrose broth and Yeast extract broth by all the six isolates of Fusarium stalk rot pathogen.
