The aerial parts such as stem, leaves and vegetative parts of teak showed a variety of fungi. Compared to the fruits, aerial parts of teak showed heavy colonies of Cercospora apii. In this study, the pathogenicity of the fungus was tested in nursery beds indicated the severity of leaf spot and leaf blight diseases. In order to control nursery diseases, saplings in nursery were treated with fungicides like Bavistin, Captan, Captafol, bio-agents like Trichoderma harzianum and Pseudomonas fluorescens. Among fungicides Bavistin proved two fold better over control, in managing the Trichoderma harzianum and Pseudomonas fluorescens also reduced the diseases to some extent. However, their effectiveness remain inferior to that of Bavistin. The fruits of teak treated with Cercospora apii resulted in delayed emergence in the nursery beds proved the aggressiveness of the fungus. Among fertilizers provided, N.P.K amendment to the soil improved the field standing of the saplings in the nursery bed.
