Evaluation of different fungicides against Alternaria solani (Ellis and Martin) Sorauer caused early blight of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)

Amit Kumar Tiwari, Ram Chandra and Manisha Sen
Early blight of tomato caused by Alternaria solani (Ellis & Martin) Sorauer is the most destructive disease that hampered its successful production all over the world. In the present study, fungi toxic activity of fungicides, namely Score (Difenoconazole 25.0% M/M), Lustre (Flusilazole 12.5% + Carbendazim SE), Emesto Prime (Penflufen 22.43%), Plusor (Thifluzamide 24% SC), Cursor (Flusilazole 40% EC) was evaluated by poisoned food technique at laboratory of Department of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India during 2018-2019 for the management of early blight of tomato caused by Alternaria solani. All the tested chemicals significantly (P≤ 0.01) inhibited the mycelial growth of a pathogen when compared with control. However, among all five tested fungicides 100% mycelia growth was inhibited from cursor (fusilazole 40% EC), (Difenoconazole 25.0% m/m) score, (Flusilazole 12.5% + carbendazim SE) lustre and found highly efficient in controlling the mycelial growth of Alternaria solani. Followed by (Penflufen 22.43%) Emesto prime 64% mycelial growth. This reduction was gradually increased by increasing the incorporated concentration. Least mycelial inhibition was observed in Pulsor (Thifluzamide 24% SC) 66%.
