Niharika Mohanty and Nibha GuptaAbstract:
Endophytic fungi were isolated from the leaves, petioles, and roots of different banana var. grown in Odisha. The local varieties Bantal, Champa, and Singpuri revealed associations with more number of fungi. All fungal isolates were evaluated against pathogenic fungi F. javanicum, F. equisetum, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, and Nigrospora sp. Three fungal species namely, Penicillium citrinum, Cladosporium variable and P. capsulatum were active against most of the test pathogenic fungi. Bantal and Singapuri exhibited a higher similarity index with the Champa variety. The survey found a substantial and multifunctional diversity of culturable endophytes in Odisha banana varieties.Pages: 57-61 | Views: 30 | Downloads: 16Download Full Article: Click Here
