Control of postharvest diseases of dates in Egypt

Control of postharvest diseases of dates in Egypt

Annals of Agricultural Science, Moshtohor 23(2): 723-730

Six fungi, Alternaria sp., Cladosporium sp., Aspergillus niger, Penicillium sp., Rhizopus nigricans (R.stolonifer), Thielaviopsis paradoxa and several species of bacteria were isolated from naturally infected dates. Total decay was more in wholesale and retail market samples than orchard samples. Thielaviopsis decay occured in wholesale and retail market samples for all tested cultivars. Rutab were more susceptible than Khalal fruits. Losses increased with increasing periods of storage.
