Abstract

Colletotrichum gloeosporioides: Biology, Pathogenicity and Management in India

Colletotrichum is one of the major plant pathogen causing anthracnose, a plant disease on variety of hosts from trees to grasses. In the present article we studied the taxonomy, biology and pathogenicity of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and the taxonomical descriptions based on morphological, microscopic and molecular approach carried out in India are also discussed in detail. Biology of the pathogen with respect to its growth conditions and detailed symptoms of anthracnose are presented.

Keywords: Colletotrichum gloeosporioides; Biology; Pathogenicity; Management; Current status; India
