Different medicinal plants were observed for occurrence of fungal diseases in Vidarbha region. Piper longum was infected by Colletotrichum gloesporiodes, Datura (Datura innoxia) and Behada (Terminalia bellerica) were proned by leaf spot caused by Alternaria alternata and kidmar (Aristolochia bracteata) infected by leaf blight caused by Colletotrichum dematium. The leaf blight disease of coleus (Coleus forskolii) caused by Curvularia lunata was recorded and its intensity was observed to the extent of 24.26% during 4th week of November. The maximum temperature and both (morning and evening) humidity exhibited negatively significant correlation with the disease.
