Abstract:

Cucumber (Cucumis sativa) is grown worldwide but suffers from several production constraints including frequent occurrence of diseases. Anthracnose (Colletotrichum orbiculare) is serious disease which infects all the aerial parts of cucumber plant and is reported for the first time in Kashmir. Under humid conditions, the lesions become dotted with pinkish masses of conidia and are manifested as angular to roughly circular reddish brown lesions on leaves. Under humid conditions the lesions become dotted with pinkish masses of conidia. Conidia are mostly produced singly and occasionally in chains at the tip of conidiophores acrogenously. The pathogen (Colletotrichum orbiculare) was successfully isolated from the infected leaves. The culture was raised on oat meal agar for growth and development. The pathogenicity of fungus was successfully established. The detailed morphological characters of the isolated pathogen are reported.
