The minimum disease incidence (6.56%) and maximum yield (338.5 q/ha) were observed in treatment T5(T0+ Seed treatment with carbendazim 12%+ mancozeb 63% @ 3 g/kg and drenching of Captan 70% + Hexaconazole 5% WP @ 0.1% 15 days after germination followed by spraying of Tebuconazole 50% + Trifloxystrobin 25% @1g/l + spray with (Imidacloprid 17.8 SL @ 7.5 ml/ 15 l + Neem oil 0.2%) followed by Fosetyl-Al @ 0.1% followed by spraying of Tebuconazole 50% + Trifloxystrobin 25% @1g/l + spray with (Imidacloprid 17.8 SL @ 7.5 ml/ 15 l + Neem oil 0.2%) followed by Fosetyl-Al @ 0.1% at 10 days interval) while maximum disease incidence (40.13%)and minimum yield (225.7 q/ha)were observed in treatment T7(Control).
