Alternative products were evaluated for the control of P. digitatum in postharvest orange Pera. All the products were compared with thiabendazole; prochloraz, imazalil and control, with and without inoculation. Each treatment was applied on 10 wounded fruits using a cork borer at two opposite points, reaching the area of the albedo. Fruits were inoculated by pipeting a 20 micro litre - 10 6 spore/ml suspension of P. digitatum in the cavities.
