Disease, Leaf spot, Climate, Mulberry.
An experiment on fungus causing leaf spot was isolated from infected leaves on potato dextrose agar medium. It was investigated that culture was very slow to grow and sporulated only under high humidity and high temperature (25-35°C). The pathogenicity of the fungus was proved by following Koch's Postulates. Further, the typical diseased spots were developed on potted plants within 10-14th days.
