This disease mainly occurs on leaves, berries and branches of Coffea arabica (Cvs. Cauvery and SanRamon) with characteristic white mycelial encrustation, which later results in rotting. Among the five fungicides evaluated against S. rolfsii in vitro, triadimefon (Bayleton 25 WP) and chlorothalonil (Kavach 75 WP) were found to be the best and was followed by captafol (Foltaf 80 WP) in efficacy, Carbendazim (SVR carbendazim) and Bordeaux mixture were the least effective fungicides.
