Abstract:
Phomopsis fruit rot is one of the most important diseases of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) worldwide. The present study was, therefore carried out to know the status of the fruit rot in Kashmir valley and to evolve an effective management strategy. The overall mean fruit rot incidence and intensity was 35.75 and 14.11 per cent, respectively. The maximum disease incidence of 42.25 and intensity of 16.24 per cent on fruits was observed in district Budgam and minimum disease incidence of 29.25 and intensity of 11.99 per cent was observed in district Pulwama. Among the fungitoxicants, propiconazole 25 EC proved to be most effective as it indicated maximum per cent disease control, followed by carbendazim 50 WP, copper oxychloride 50WP and metalaxyl + mancozeb 68 WP in the decreasing order of their efficacy. Among the mulches applied rice straw proved to be most effective followed by wheat straw over check. Among the interactions propiconazole 25 EC + rice straw proved to be most effective over check followed by carbendazim 50 WP + rice straw, propiconazole 25 EC + wheat straw, copper oxychloride 50 WP + rice straw, carbendazim 50 WP+ wheat straw, copper oxychloride 50WP + wheat straw, metalaxyl + mancozeb 68 WP + rice straw and metalaxyl + mancozeb 68 WP + wheat straw in the decreasing order of their efficacy.
