Abstract

Corynespora cassiicola (Berk. & Curt.) Wei, and a, species of Botryodiplodia were consistently isolated from various tissues of Carica papaya plants affected by the papaya decline disease. Young papaya plants of the 'Solo' variety were successfully inoculated with the aforementioned fungi. Most of the symptoms of the decline disease developed on papaya plants after inoculation with Corynespora. Severe stem necrosis of papaya plants resulted from inoculation with Botryodiplodia. C. cassiicola loses its virulence after series transfers through artificial media.
