Sajad A. M. | Abid H. Q.


Abstract: Post harvest deterioration of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum), Potato (Solanum tuberosum), Brinjal (Solanum melongena) and Chilli (Capsicum annum) from three selected markets in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh were surveyed. Both healthy and diseased samples were collected from three different markets of Jabalpur. Six different fungal species Geotrichum candidum, Aspergillus flavus, Rhizopus stolonifer. , Mucor sp. , Penicillium digitatum. , and Alternaria solani caused deterioration of Lycopersicon esculentum while Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium moniliforme, and Rhizopus stolonifer, were found associated with solanum tuberosum. Alternaria solani, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxysporum, and Cladosporium cladosporioides were isolated from Solanum melongena. Colletotrichum curvuli, Alternaria solani, Rhizopus stolonifer, Fusarium oxysporum and Aspergillus niger were associated with deterioration of Capsicum annum. All fungi isolated from these vegetables were pathogenic and cause considerable losses in the markets and storage of these vegetables.
