Abstract:
Field experiments were conducted to test potentiality of ten different systemic and broad spectrum fungicides for management of powdery mildew disease and to increase the seed yield of sesame at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, JAU, Pipalia (Gujarat). All the fungicides tested were found to be superior over control but among the different fungicides tested, propiconazole 25% EC (0.025%) was found to be significantly effective by recording minimum disease intensity (6.48%) coupled with higher seed yield (699 kg/ha) followed by application of azoxystrobin 18.2% + difenoconazole 11.4% SC (0.030%) with 10.92% disease intensity and 688 kg/ha seed yield. The results were significantly superior over other fungicides both in disease reduction and increased seed yields. While, spraying of flucilazole 12.5% + carbendazim 25% SE (0.056%) was found to be least effective in reducing disease with 54.81% disease intensity and 628 kg/ha seed yield.
