The present study investigated the growth of Colletotrichum capsici in six different medium Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA), Oat meal Agar(OMA), Corn meal Agar(CMA), V-8 juice agar(V-8), Potato Carrot Agar(PCA) and Potato Fruit Agar(PFA). Among the different tested media, OMA supported the maximum growth significantly and PDA supported minimum growth that compared to all other media. The fungus derives food and energy from the substrate upon which they grow in nature. There is no universal substrate or artificial medium upon which all the fungi can grow and reproduce regularly. Therefore studies were conducted in different suitable media to identify surface medium for the growth and sporulation of C. capsici. The OMA media selected for biochemical test in C. capsici. The fungicides Indofil M-45 and Carbendazim were evaluated in minimum inhibitory concentration. These fungicide activity show against C. capsici.
