Abstract:

Taro [Colocasia esculenta var. antiquorum [(L.) Schott] suffers extensively throughout the growing season as fungal leaf blight, caused by Phytophthora colocasiae Raciborski. The disease affects the leaves and petioles of taro plants, which are spreading rapidly, and coalesce each other, thus causes extensive damage of the foliage. Resistant cultivar invades the pathogen by structural, rural and biochemical means. However, natural selection of field resistant lines is the key for field management in acquiring resistance against leaf blight of Taro.


Keywords: Taro leaf bight, Germplasm, Season.
