This survey was performed in 1985 and 1986, on vegetable crops in the northern Minas Gerais. Diseases were found on garlic, onion, chayote, tomato, potato, pepper, squash, melon, asparagus and carrot. In others vegetable crops were not detected diseases. In general, the number of diseases were high in number but low in intensity. Fusarium rot on potatoes, post harvest rot of onion bulbs caused by Botrytis alliii, Fusarium spp., Aspergillus niger and Penicillium sp., were found. It is worth noticing the great aggressiveness of Mycosphaerella melonis, the causal agent of gummy stem blight of melon. Probably, the climatic conditons were the principal factor for the establishment of healthy crops. This fact makes the region one of the best for healthy vegetable seed production.
