Abstract:

The oomycetous fungus Phytophthora colocasiae that causes taro leaf blight is one of the most devastating diseases of taro and is widely distributed in India. Characterization of morphological and cultural was used to characterize 4 isolates of P. colocasiae obtained from different locations of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Considerable differences in morphological parameters were observed. This study confirms that isolates of P. colocasiae are highly dynamic in nature and a considerable degree of diversity exists among them. A detailed knowledge of the morphological characters of P. colocasiae will help in developing suitable control strategies against the taro leaf blight disease.
