Abstract:

Present study was conducted to evaluate the jasmonic acid (JA) production capacity of the isolated pathogenic fungus Lasiodiplodia sp. causing leaf blight in coconut and pod rot in cocoa. The fungal cultures were isolated from the diseased coconut and cocoa using PDA (Potato dextrose Agar). Morphological confirmation was done by examining the isolates under microscope, having obvoidal shape conidia. Jasmonic acid production was compared with standard culture and evaluated for higher JA production using four different media (Potato dextrose medium, Potato carrot medium, Nutrient medium and Minimal salt medium). The results depicted that potato dextrose media recorded the maximum in terms of growth and basal salt medium recorded higher jasmonic acid (JA) production under optimized growth conditions.


Keywords: Lasiodiplodia sp., Jasmonic acid, Submerged fermentation, Defence signalling.
