AbstractInfected specimens of Eucalyptus spp. Myrtaceae received from local nursery were examined; they showed rotting and browning at the basal regions of their stems.
Isolations were made from the affected portions and a profusely growing fungus was obtained consistently and it was identified as Pestalotia maculiformans. Successful pathogenicity tests were also carried out. Effect of three fungicides Benlate, Topsin and Dithane M-45 on the growth and sporulation of the pathogen was studied in vitro and in vivo, Benlate was found to be most effective even at 0.001 gm liter amongest all fungicides tested.
