Abstract


India is the largest producer of mango (Mangifera indica L.) in the world accounting for 52-63 per cent of total production. One of the major constraints in mango production is anthracnose disease caused by Colletotricum gloeosporiodes, perfect stage-Glomerella cingulata. It invades on leaves, twigs, inflorescence and fruits reasonably ample loss considering total fruit reduction and production of poor quality fruit produced, rendered decreased rate in price. Therefore, an attempt was made with different fungicides in controlling anthracnose of mango. This investigation suggests carbendazim (4.48% PDI) as the most effective fungicide rendering maximum yield (126.8 kg/ tree).
