Abstract:

Tamilnadu is one of the leading banana grower in the country. Eighty-two per cent of fruit production in India is shared by the banana. Banana fruits after harvest are infected by a series of post-harvest pathogens. Among them, anthracnose disease caused by the pathogen Colletotrichum musae is the very dexterous disease. It may cause fruit loss up to 80 per cent. Many fungicides are used to control this disease. The method of applications like dipping, spraying and top dressing is commonly practised. An alternate approach of the application of biological control agents to manage the pathogens is now come into the light. This present study was done to put forth the effect of antifungal activity of a potential biocontrol agent Ophiocordyceps sinensis and its mycomolecules against the post-harvest pathogen C. musae.
