Abstract
In an investigation of pathogenic variation in Colletotrichum graminicola, the causal agent of anthracnose of sorghum in northern Nigeria, fifteen isolates of the fungus, collected from various places in the northern states of Nigeria, were used. Pathogenicity tests conducted on these isolates showed that C. graminicola is specialized with respect to the varieties of sorghum it attacks. Among the 15 isolates, 10 pathogenic types have been tentatively identified by the reaction of 6 varieties of sorghum to them
