Ahmed R. Al-Najada "Isolation and Identification of Post-Harvest Fungal Pathogens of Spoilt Grape Fruits" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-4 | Issue-1, December 2019, pp.1086-1089, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd29827.pdf

The present investigation was carried out with survey, isolation of the pathogens responsible for post harvest spoilage, their pathogenicity and symptomatology of fungi in order to suggest suitable control for management of post harvest diseases of grapes. Present investigation showed that, the extent of losses due to post harvest diseases were lesser in the field as compared to post harvest losses in marketplace. Among the post harvest diseases, fungus Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizopus, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium, Phomopsis, Pestalotiopsis and Botryodiplodia were the major pathogens isolated from infected grape, which later on leads to rot. the results of the present study have revealed the spoiled grapes were mainly contaminated with Fusarium oxysporum, Aspergillus niger and Penicillium sp, and least infection with Rhizopus, Phomopsis, Pestalotiopsis and Botryodiplodia. These fungal pathogens could be harzadous to human health, due to some of these pathogens could produce mycotoxins which might lead to economic loss, health hazards and decrease the quality and quantity of grape fruits. Appropriate post-harvest proccing and intensive care during harvesting season will be helpful to reduce the infection and contamination with these fungal pathogens and for expanding the shelf life of gape fruits against fungal pathogen during storage period.
