First report of jackfruit decline caused by Phytophthora spp. in Bangladesh

Farhana Jenny,Md Abdul Kader,Md. Abdullahil Baki Bhuiyan.


A survey was conducted at Gazipur, one of the major jackfruit producing districts in Bangladesh where decline syndromes were frequently observed. The characteristic symptoms of jackfruit decline included trunk canker, wilting, dieback of the canopy and in some cases complete death. The disease incidence was increased with the increase of plants age. Among the isolated fungi from the study area, only Phytophthora spp. were found to be pathogenic and caused decline symptoms in artificially inoculated jackfruit seedlings. Based on the morphological data, the isolates were confirmed as Phytophthora spp. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report in Bangladesh.

Key words: die back, wilting, canker, sporangium
