Mycoflora of coffee beans in the Philippines.
The mycoflora of coffee beans in the Philippines was determined after harvest, after drying, and roasted coffee from retail markets and the total fungal load in coffee beans increased after drying but was reduced significantly by 93 to 97% after roasting.
Biocontrol activities of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens DGA14 isolated from banana fruit surface against banana crown rot-causing pathogens
Survey of Philippine coffee beans for the presence of ochratoxigenic fungi
There were remarkable ecological and varietal differences in the population of OTA-producing species from the five provinces and the presence of fungal species was evaluated both before and after surface sterilization.
Control of crown rot-causing fungal pathogens of banana by inorganic salts and a surfactant
Identification of Clonostachys and Trichoderma spp. from banana fruit surfaces by cultural, morphological and molecular methods
Molecular and phylogenetic analyses revealed the identity of the fungal isolates as Clonostachys byssicola Schroers and Trichoderma harzianum Rifai, and their phylogenic placement was confirmed.

Dipping the bananas for 10–15 min in these concentrations reduced the incidence of crown rot (compared with the untreated fruits) 17 days after harvest in fruits treated with NaClO by 67%, with NaHCO3 by 62%, withNaCl by 38%, and with CaCl2 by 33%.
Lasiodiplodia theobromae causes vascular streak dieback (VSD)–like symptoms of cacao in Davao Region, Philippines
Samples of Theobroma cacao seedlings and mature trees with vascular streak dieback (VSD)–like symptoms were observed in Davao, Philippines in 2014 and revealed that the fungus associated with symptomatic leaves and branches was Lasiodiplodia theobromae.

An integrated approach using hot water treatment and salt in the control of crown rot disease and preservation of quality in banana was investigated and HWT alone showed the lowest efficacy in controlling fruit decay.
Inhibitory influence of biocontrol agents, plant oils, and an inorganic salt on Mycosphaerella fijiensis and Cordana musae

The search for alternatives to chemical treatments to control the causal pathogens of black sigatoka and Cordana leaf spot in banana was studied in vitro and biocontrol agents, plant oils, and an inorganic salt were examined.
The aerial and fruit surface populations of fungi in nonchemical banana production in the Philippines
The results suggest that the source and origin of fungi associated with postharvest diseases of banana fruit in Japan imported from the Philippines were the farm itself, and the fungal association with banana fruit began at flower emergence.
