In order to ascertain the impact of physiological parameters like temperature and pH on growth and sporulation of M. phaseolina and F. oxysporum, causing stem-root rot and wilt diseases of jute, an experiment was conducted to examine. It was discovered that Fusarium oxysporum thrived at pH 5 (80.135 mg) while Macrophomina phaseolina grew best at neutral pH, or pH 7 (69.065 mg). M. phaseolina grows best at temperatures ranging from 35 °C to 30 °C, with no growth observed at lower temperatures. Fusarium oxysporum's growth peaked at 25 °C (90.00 mm), and it significantly decreased below 15 °C and above 40 °C. In response to changes in temperature, fungal development slows.
