Formatted abstract
Potential fungicides for the control of coffee berry anthracnose in Papua New Guinea were identified. Sixteen fungicides were tested in vitro at 100 μg mL-1 a.i. for their inhibition of spore germination and mycelial growth of Colletotrichum acutatum  Simmonds and C. gloeosporioides (Penz.) Penz. & Sacc. isolates from anthracnose infected coffee berries in Papua New Guinea. The most effective fungicides  (triademorph, captan, thiram, propiconazole and copper oxychloride) were tested further at concentrations between 0–12800 mg L -1 a.i. Thiram at 200 μg mL-1 a.i. was the most effective fungicide followed by propiconazole. Detached coffee berries were not infected by C. acutatum and C. gloeosporioides when treated with  suspensions of the five fungicides at the in vitro rates that totally inhibited spore germination and mycelial growth. The results showed that thiram at 200 μg mL-1 a.i. and propiconazole are the best fungicides for field testing of control of anthracnose on coffee in Papua New Guinea.
