ABSTRACT
Fusarium solani is a phytopathogenic fungus and is an important causal agent of several crop diseases, such as root and fruit rot of Cucurbita spp., root and stem rot of pea, root rot of okra. The objective of current research was to determine the growth rate of different isolates of Fusarium solani, the cause of root rot of okra, in Peshawar. Five isolates of Fusarium solani collected from five different places and were investigated for growth rate of the colonies. Highest colony growth rate (86.3 mm) was recorded for isolate collected from Achini payan and lowest (60 mm) for isolate collected from Palosi. Under In vitro.
Keywords: Abelmoschus esculentus L, Fusarium solani, Colony growth rate
