To explore nontoxic degradable natural substances which could be used to control Zanthoxylum bungeanum diseases, the effects of oligochitosans, i.e., OCHA and OCHB, on pathogenic fungi Pseudocercospora zanthoxyli, Fusarium sambucinum and Phytophthora boehmeriae were investigated. Excellent inhibitory effects of OCHA and OCHB on the growth of all tested pathogens were observed, which were calculated by RGI and BGI. The highest inhibitions for P. zanthoxyli and F. sambucinum were induced by 1.0 mg/mL OCHB with the corresponding RGI values as 51.25% and 95.69%, and BGI values as 44.76% and 92.34%. For P. boehmeriae, the maximum values of RGI and BGI were induced by 1.0 mg/mL OCHA with the corresponding values as 82.35% and 53.24%. Desirable results obtained from the present research might establish the foundation for the utilization of oligochitosan for the nuisanceless control of Z. bungeanum diseases.
