Fusrium is serious pathogen causing wilt in okara. For monitoring this pathogen isolates collected from six different varieties of okara from different places of south Gujarat. There was a good deal of variation in pathogenic, cultural and morphological within the isolates of the pathogen. Macroconidia were straight; spindle as well as sickle shaped and had 1-6 septa. Microconidia were hyaline, round to oval in shape and had 0-1 septa. Chlamydospores were round, oval, terminal and intercalary in all the isolates. The size of chlamydospores varied from 6.85-7.73 x 6.67-7.90 μm in ISOLATE-7. Maximum sporulation (21.68 x 106 spores/ml) was observed in ISOLATE-7. The pathogenic variability study was carried out on six different okra varieties. The ISOLATE-7, ISOLATE-4 and ISOLATE-8 proved highly virulent pathogen. Rest of isolates showed moderately to less virulence on different okra varieties.
