Abstract:

Black banded disease of mango, caused by Peziotrichum corticolum (Massee) Subramanian, is becoming severe for the last three to four years in all the mango growing regions. Morphological and cultural characteristics of the pathogen were studied. The identity of the fungus was confirmed. The fungus showed maximum radial growth on host extract dextrose agar on 12th day after incubation at 27±1oC. Culture of P. corticolum exhibited diversity with respect to cultural characters like type of the growth, mycelial colour, pigmentation and colony margin. Maximum dry mycelial weight of the fungus was recorded on 14th day after incubation. Dry mycelial weight of the fungus was more in Richards’ broth (538.00 mg) than potato dextrose broth (442.33 mg).


Keywords: Black banded disease, Mango, Peziotrichum corticolum, Cultural, Morphological.
