Abstract:

A Survey was conducted in major chilli growing areas of west Bengal for most prevailing diseases in chilli during the year 2015-16. As a result in chilli apart from the anthracnose, Alternaria, Choanephora blight a new disease was observed showing symptoms as dark brown spots on leaf, stem and fruit on chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) plants in Basantapur, West Bengal during 2015–2016. The fungus was isolated from collected samples and proved Koch’s postulates by detached leaf technique. The isolated pathogen was identified as Corynespora cassiicola on the basis of morphological and cultural characters of the pathogen. This is the first report of Corynespora spot caused by C. cassiicola on chilli in West Bengal.
