Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is considered as one of the most popular fruits among millions of people in the tropical and sub-tropical area and increasingly in the developed countries. Anthracnose, caused by the fungus Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, is the most important pre- and post-harvest disease of mango. Twelve isolates of C. gloeosporiodes were obtained from Rewa (4 isolates), Sidhi (3 isolates), Satna (4 isolates) and Jabalpur (1 isolate) districts of Madhya Pradesh and screened in the greenhouse for virulence using spray inoculation method on a year old mango grafts and observed considerable variation in per cent disease index (PDI) and grouped in to different virulence categories. Results indicated that among the twelve isolates Cg11 exhibited maximum per cent disease index of 41.15 and Cg2 recorded lowest per cent disease index of 21.31. Among the different media tested, Potato dextrose agar medium supported significantly the maximum growth of all the twelve isolates of C. gloeosporioides. Further, the strains were found to vary morphologically between the isolates under the study.

Keywords: Mango, Anthracnose, Pathogenicity, Variability.
