Abstract:

Cabbage head rot (White mould) disease caused by Sclerotina sclerotiorum is a potential threat to cabbage production and 60 percent yield loss was recorded. The disease was first reported in Kodaikanal area in Tamil Nadu. Coniothyrium minitans is an novel biocontrol agent for the management of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum because of its sclerotial mycoparasites. The growth of Coniothyrium minitans was studied with the different growth parameters like media, pH, temperature and light. The results revealed that the fastest mycelial growth was observed in Potato Dextrose Agar Media (26.33). Among the different media tested, the sporulation was observed in the PDA medium at the pH level of 5.5, temperature 20oC with the 12hrs dark and light condition.
