Durian Disease: Anthracnose

Entomopathogenic Fungi: Colletotrichum spp.

Entomopathogenic Fungi widely spread in the humid climate. In the serious case, the leaf losses the photosynthesize area and finally falls off. Entomopathogenic Fungi on the leaf flow in the air along with drizzle. If it ruins the flower, the stain of grey puffy fungi will be on the rotten area. As a result, the flower falls. If it is on the fruit, the small brown spot will be visible at the prickle cavity before expanding the scar size. The round-mark at the prickle cavity is black and possibly has the orange mucilage at the scar.
