Peziotrichum corticolum (Massee) Subramanian produces Black Band disease on the bark of mango. A survey conducted in Kolhapur District of Maharashtra showed that disease incidence in the area was 100% and severity of the disease was medium to high. The disease affects wild (Raywal) as well as all the cultivated varieties of mango viz (Hapus, Kesar, Bainganpalli, Totapuri, Neelam, etc.). Experiments were conducted under field conditions to test efficacy of fungicides viz. Contaf, Sulphur, Care, Bordeaux mixture, Himil Gold, Kavach and Multineem oil, plant extracts viz. Nicotiana tabacum L., Lantana camara L., Polyalthia longifolia (Sonner.) Thw. and Justicia adhatoda L. and combination of fungicides and botanicals on growth of Peziotrichum corticolum (Massee) Subramanian. It was observed that growth of Peziotrichum corticolum (Massee) Subramanian was affected by Sulphur, Care, Contaf, Lantana, Polyalthia , Nicotiana+ Contaf, Nicotiana+ Sulphur, Lantana+ Care, Lantana+ Himil Gold, Lantana+ Bordeaux mixture, Lantana + Sulphur, Polyalthia + Care, Polyalthia+ Bordeaux mixture, Polyalthia + Sulphur, Justicia + Himil Gold, Justicia + Sulphur, Multineem oil+ Kavach and  Multineem oil + Himil Gold.
