    Fungicides can control the disease and should be applied at bud swell. Cotton Root Rot (fungus – Phymatotrichopsis omnivora): Although avocado is susceptible to cotton rot root, it is not a common disease. It is characterized by a sudden wilt of the tree. The leaves turn brown and remain on the tree. and nutritional qualities of fruits can be affected, which could lead to a decrease in post-harvest life (Zamora, ). The quality of avocado is often diminished along the packing and marketing processes, and sometimes it does not reach its destination at its best. The following disorders of avocado have been classified as follows (Swarts, ):File Size: 2MB.

    The avocado fruit has one large seed which makes up to 10 - 25% of the fruit weight. The fruit of different avocado varieties may vary in moisture and oil content, from less than 5% oil to more than 30% oil. Avocado fruits range from lb to more than 3 lb in weight. Stem-end rot is another important postharvest disease of avocado which can be caused by a number of different fungi including Dothiorella spp., Lasiodiplodia theobromae and Phomopsis perseae. The anthracnose pathogen C. gloeosporioides can also cause a stem-end rot of avocado fruit.

Avocados are existed since the s in India and first. ABSTRACT. Root rot (Phytophthora cinnamomi Rands) is one of the most restrictive factors to avocado growing in main producing regions Brazil, scientific reports on the effectiveness of control methods are scarce. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of gypsum applications and dolomitic limestone to the soil and potassium phosphite sprays in controlling this Cited by: 2.

Decay of tropical and subtropical fruits is a major cause of postharvest losses and is due mainly to fungal infections (Armstrong, ).While reports on the level of these losses are conflicting, they are estimated at 50% or more in developing countries due to the lack of adequate handling and refrigeration facilities; losses may be lower in developed by: 7.ripening and development of off-fla vours in avocado fruits.
