Production and cocoa plantation area in Indonesia decline every year, major causes is the outbreak of the cocoa black pod disease.  Results showed that the antagonistic fungi found based on the DNA sequences are Lasiodiplodia euphorbicola, Diaporthe tectonae, Colletotrichum siamense, Aspergillus flavus, Candida parapsilogis, and Aspergillus sydowii. The results of the best inhibition shown by the endophytic fungus L. euphorbicola, thus passed field trials which showed that the higher the concentration of spore suspension the better the power suppress fungal antagonists against P. palmivora. The best concentration that colonies of the Petri dish was dissolved in 150 ml of sugar solution (10%).
