Author(s): Prashant Kumar Singh, Jagdish Kumar Patidar, Reeti Singh, S Roy and RK Pandya
Abstract: Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn [Thanatephorus cucumeris (Frank) Donk] is most important pathogen of potato causing black scurf. In the present investigation, seven culture media viz., Potato dextrose agar, Corn meal agar, Water agar, Czapek’s agar, Malt extract agar, Potato leaf agar and Potato stem agar were evaluated to find out the appropriate growth of R. solani. Out of seven culture media tested, maximum mycelial growth and sclerotia per plate was recorded in potato dextrose agar while minimum mycelial growth was recorded in Water agar. Maximum sclerotia diameter was recorded in Malt extract agar.
