Fruit rot of grape caused by Alternaria tenuis was found to be resistant to Aureofungin. Antibiotics viz. Griseofulvin Mycostatin, Penicillin and Strepomycin individually or in mixture with Aureofungin were tested both in vitro and in vivo against resistant mutant of Alternaria tenuis. Results showed that individually PCE was higher in Mycostatin followed by Griseofulvin, streptomycin and Penicillin. Use of Aureofungin mixed with antibiotics, the PCE was highly increased.
