Isolation of Pathogenic fungi from Piper betle L.
- The present study deals with the isolation of pathogenic fungi from infected leaves and stem parts of Piper betle L. (Kun). The specimens were collected from Wa Yon Chaung Village, Nga Zun Township, Mandalay Region. Totally seven strains of pathogenic fungi were isolated from infected parts of betelvine. Stem rot and yellow leaf diseases were caused by Aspergillus spp. (NZ 01, NZ 07)). and leaf rot disease caused by Fusarium sp. (NZ 02). Leaf spot disease was infected by Curvularia sp. (NZ 03) and Cladosporium sp. (NZ 04). Anthracnose disease was formed by Alternaria sp. (NZ 05) and Colletotrichum sp. (NZ 06). The colony morphology, spore and hyphae characters were described and presented with photomicrographs. The two species of Aspergillus are the same genus but the different species because of the presence of septate and non-septate conidiophore and the difference color of colony.
