Mango (Mangifera indica L.) anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides (Penz.) Penz and Sacc. is one of the most serious diseases in all mango growing regions of the world. Pathogen, C. gloeosporioides being cosmopolitan, occurs on exceedingly diverse host plants. The pathogen being facultative saprophytic, can grow actively in vitro conditions under proper incubation upto certain days (12-15). The present study conducted to know optimum incubation period for maximum mycelial weight in potato dextrose broth (PDB). The dry mycelial growth (63.90 mg) increases gradually from 2nd day of inoculation and reached a maximum mycelial dry weight (598.80 mg) on the 12th day of inoculation, whereas, mycelial weight (534.56 mg)  gradually decreases towards the 14th day of inoculation.

Key words: Mango, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, Incubation period, Dry mycelial weight.
