Carbendazim resistant, Fungicides, fruit rot, resistant mutant, Zizyphus fruit, Agrochemical, Aspergillus niger


Integrated management of Zizyphus fruit rot caused by carbendazim resistant mutant of Aspergillus niger was studied, use of agrochemical like fungicides individually or in combination with carbendazim appeared to be more beneficial for managing this fruit rot Benomyl, Dithane Z-78, Mancozeb, Karathane, Ridomil, Tridemorph were effective in managing this disease. However, use this fungicide in mixture with carbendazim was more beneficial.
