  The biochemical parameters such as moisture, ash, protein, fat, carbohydrate, Vitamin-C, phenol, pectin and mineral contents of healthy and leaf spot disease infected mulberry (Morus sp.) leaves were analyzed. Most of these nutrient contents in mulberry leaves were affected greatly with the infection of fungi. Total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, starch, moisture, ash, protein and lipid contents were found to be decreased in infected mulberry leaves due to leaf spot disease caused by Cercospora moricola Cooke and these contents were decreased by 8.58, 1.6, 60.09, 20.22, 24.52, 38.16, 33.84 and 40.26%, respectively. Among the contents, only Vitamin-C, phenol, pectin and mineral contents were found to be increased in infected samples over healthy samples and these contents were increased by 90, 84.21, 35 and 39.97%, respectively. The changes of total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, starch, protein, ash and lipid contents decreased remarkably but those of Vitamin-C, phenol, pectin and mineral contents increased significantly in leaves of disease affected mulberry as compared to those in healthy mulberry.

  Leaf spot disease incidence caused by Cercospora moricola Cooke was studied on five high yielding and a local variety of mulberry during the months of May to September in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Leaf infection was observed in those years. Percentage of disease incidence was calculated against Cercospora leaf spot disease in five high yielding and one local varieties. Among the six varieties the local one was found to be highly susceptible to Cercospora where the highest disease incidence (55.60%) around three years was recorded. BM-4 (16.97%) and BM-5 (18.46%) were found to be moderately resistant. On the other hand BM-1 (27.83%), BM-2 (29.82%) and BM-3 (36.99%) were identified as moderately susceptible to leaf spot disease.
