Abstract

Cultivation of Vanilla planifolia in Kampung Sungai Daling, Sandakan were unsuccessful due to disease infestation. Mycological investigation in infected stems, leaves and roots of vanilla, sampled from three sites of vanilla farm located at Kampung Sungai Daling, Sandakan, Sabah was carried out in September 2013. The samples were brought back to School of Sustainable Agriculture (SSA) laboratory, surface sterilized, cut into small pieces with sterilized scalpel blade on sterilized petri dish, placed on PDA and cultured. Pure cultures of resulting fungi were obtained from subcultures of the Infected parts. They were identified morphologically and microscopically based on standard procedure. Investigation found that there were Colletotrichum sp., Fusarium sp., Mucor sp. and Rhizoctonia sp. with several unidentified species isolated from the vanilla samples, found to be of similar genus infecting other vanilla plantation in several countries.
