Effect of different fungicides against Colletotrichum capsici caused chilli anthracnose disease
Preeti Dubey, Ram Chandra and Parikshit Gupta
Chilli anthracnose is one of the most important and widely distributed diseases in all chilli growing regions of the world causing considerable losses in yield and quality. Five fungicides viz. Kasugamycin (Kasu B 3%SL), Pyraclostrobin + Metaram (Carbrio Top 60%WG), Azoxystrobin (Onestar 23%SC), Fusilazole (Cursor 40%EC) and Folicur 250 EC (Tebuconazole) were assayed for their efficacy against Colletotrichum capsici by Poison food technique. These fungicides were prepared at two concentrations viz. 250 ppm and 500ppm. Cabrio Top with per cent inhibition of 84.11% found to be best in inhibiting mycelia growth of pathogen and found to be superior over other chemical fungicides. While Cursor Folicur was inhibited 76.33% mycelia growth over control followed by Folicur, One star and Kasugamycine at 500 ppm. There are different fungicides and chemicals available in the market for control of anthracnose disease. However some fungicides are highly effective against pathogen and disease and some fungicides are not effectively control the anthracnose disease of chilli. Therefore this investigation will helpful to the farmer for selection of suitable fungicides used as a control of anthracnose disease, an integrated way to save their crop from the disease and obtain better yield.
