Superior seedless is a promising variety of grape under moist and warm conditions may severely get hampered by anthracnose caused by Gloeosporium ampelophagum (Pass.) Sacc. To evaluate the biochemical reaction of the variety to the pathogen, the study was undertaken at Ludhiana (Punjab) in 2016. The percent disease index (0–9) scale, the morphologi...

Preventive and curative activity of postharvest treatments with chitosan nanoparticles (CS) and chitosan biocomposites loaded with pepper tree essential oil (CS-PEO) against anthracnose were evaluated on Avocado (Persea americana) cv. Hass artificially inoculated in rind wounds. After 10 days of storage significant preventive and curative activity ...

One isolate of Colletotrichum truncatum was found recently causing severe anthracnose symptoms and leading to the death of beggartick (Bidens pilosa L. and Bidens subalternans DC.), one of the major weeds of Brazilian agriculture. This isolate, namely UFU 280, was selected for development of a mycoherbicide against this weed. Associated of beggarti...

Anthracnose of banana is incited by Colletotrichum musae. It is recognized as one the most destructive diseases of mature and immature banana fruits, resulting in huge economic losses all over the world. Present research deals with screening some oils both in vitro and in vivo for their antifungal activity against C.musae. Clove oil (0.1µl/ml) comp...

Cactus prickly pear (Nopalea cochenillifera) is native to Mexico and is widespread throughout the world. In Brazil, this plant is cultivated exclusively in the Northeast region. Although presenting extreme rusticity and adaptability to the conditions of the Northeast, cactus prickly pear suffers from the attack of pests and diseases that can signif...
