Author(s):

Abstract:
Rice sheath blight disease is causing significant loss, particularly in areas where high yielding varieties are cultivated. It has a wide range of hosts including cultivated crops, weed plants and various family of horticultural crops. The present study was undertaken during kharif 2016 and kharif 2017 to evaluate the disease management practices combined with different doses of ‘N’ fertilizer under the field condition. Treatments were allocated under randomized block design (RBD). Disease severity and percent disease index were recorded. The evaluation of sheath blight disease management practice combined with N fertilizer revealed that the susceptible variety + 1/2 RDN + three spray of hexaconazole reduced the sheath blight PDI (32.88%) as compared to control (75.93%).
