Abstract

Market diseases of banana were surveyed in three markets of Mymensingh town. Anthracnose and botryodiplodia rots were detected as the main cause of market rots of banana fruits. About 2.04-4.90% fruits were rotted during April-September due to anthracnose and 2.96-4.74% owing to botryodiplodia rots. Both the diseases clearly correlated positive with temperature. The causes of anthracnose and botryodiplodia rots were identified as Colletotrichum musae and Botryodiplodia theobromae, respectively.
