To screen the effective anti-mould formulations, fungicides such as carbendazim, tebuconazole, fludioxonil, difenoconazole, prochloraz, benomyl and 8-hydroxy-quinoline copper (copper oxine) were selected to conduct the laboratory test of fungicidal activity by method of inhibition zone against Botryodiplodia theobromae Pat., Fusarium sp., Alternaria tenuis Nees., Penicillium purpurogenum Stoll, Trichoderma harzianum Rifai and Aspergillus fumigatus Fres., the key stain and mould fungi isolated from bamboo wood. The results showed that tebuconazole, prochloraz and fludioxonil could almost inhibit all the fungi at all test concentrations. Difenoconazole was effective on the fungi except B. theobromae at the recommended concentrations. Carbendazim could only inhibit B.theobromae and T. harzianu at 100 mg/L. Copper oxine and benomyl had poor effect on all the fungi.
