Banana rot disease is often found in Bali, especially bananas are the main means for completing religious ceremonies in Bali. Banana rot often spoils during storage or post-harvest. The results showed that the cause of banana rot disease was Colletrotrichummusae with DNA fragments measuring 650 bp successfully amplified using universal primers ITS1/ITS4. The highest in vitro inhibition of exophytic fungi against pathogens was achieved by A. niger, Neurospora sp. and Rhizopus sp. each with an inhibitory power of 100%, the lowest was achieved by Neurospora sp. at the time of days after inoculation (DAI) by 50%. While the inhibition of endophytic fungi against pathogens was Rhizopus sp. with inhibition of 100% from 1 DAI to 4 DAI followed by A. niger at 100% at 3 and 4 DAI. The results of the in vivo inhibition of selected exophytic and endophytic fungi against pathogens were as follows: the highest inhibitory power was C (Rhizopus sp.1) of 94±5.48%, followed by treatment A (A. niger 1) of 92±8.37%, treatment B (A. niger 2) was 64±5.48% %, treatment E (Rhizopus sp. 2) was 54±5.48%, and the least inhibition was treatment D (Neurospora sp. 1) by 44±5.48%.
