Fungi associated with dates in West Bengal, India

Dr. Solanki Sarkar and Dr. Mrinmoy Mondal
On various synthetic media, the fungal counts per gram of air-dried dates from eight different date-palm isolates varied noticeably. The highest fungal counts were found in North 24 Parganas and Hooghly isolates, while the lowest were found in Bankura isolates. Numerous date isolates were typically associated with Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Fusarium sp., Pestalotia palmarum, Phytophthora sp., Diplodia phoenicum, and Cladosporium herbarum. The fungi appeared to have colonized after the relative humidity was raised to 90% at 25 and 30 °C. The isolated fungi grew best at a glucose concentration of 60% in artificial media.
