Abstract

Phylloplane is the leaf surface itself that harbors a variety of microorganism both pathogens and saprophyte. An infection was reported on Ipomoea cairica plant in DDU Gorakhpur University campus. A general study was conducted on the microbial diversity on the healthy and infected leaf by leaf impression method. The study revealed growth of microbes which would have served as the causative pathogens infecting the plant.

Keywords: Ipomoea cairica; pathogens; saprophyte; phylloplane; microbial diversity.
