Abstract: Gibbago trianthemae Simmons is a fungal pathogen known as a bioherbicide, particularly against the weed, horse purslane (Trianthema portulacastrum L.). Here, we isolated the pathogen from diseased leaves of T. portulacastrum and the isolate was considered as a prospective biocontrol agent against Trianthema weed after preliminary screening. Extensive work on growth and sporulation of G. trianthemae was carried out under various factors to develop bioherbicide approach (spore inoculum treatments) to eradicate the target weed. We evaluate the effect of culture media, temperature, pH and light regimes on growth and sporulation of G. trianthemae. Biocontrol efficiency of G. trianthemae was tested on various laboratory conditions to develop mycoherbicide potential against target weed.
