Abstract


Antagonistic effect of an entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae was evaluated against plant
pathogens Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, Pestalotia mangeferae and Botrydipliodia theobromae causing anthracnose,
leaf blight, fruit rot and fruit tip rot on mango. Results indicated M. anisopliae inhibited the growth of C. gloeosporioides
