Social forest nursery in Mysore district maintained by State Forest Department of Karnataka (India) was surveyed for the
incidence of fungal diseases during 2011-2012. Incidence, severity and spread of the disease were recorded and fungal
pathogens were isolated and identified. Forestry species raised in nursery bags includes Azadirachta indica, Bauhinia variegata,
Cinnamomum verum, Dalbergia latifolia, Dendrocalamus strictus, Mangifera indica, Phyllanthus emblica, Pterocarpus santalinus,
Pterospermum acerifolium and Tamarindus indica were found infected with foliage diseases. Some of the important pathogens
include species of fungi belonging to genera Alternaria, Cercospora, Cladosporium, Colletotrichum, Helminthosporium,
Oidium, Ravenelia etc. Seedling congestion and overcrowding often resulted in spread of foliar fungal pathogens. The study
helped us to understand the incidence of fungal pathogens on seedlings in forest nursery of Mysore. Since seedlings grown in
forest nurseries are the primary sources of planting stock, it is necessary to investigate the associated pathogens. There is a strong
need for better understanding of these pathogens for developing effective management strategies
