In 2019-20, the mean maximum disease incidence (18.17%) was recorded in Shivamogga district, followed by Davanagere (12.64%), and the mean lowest disease incidence (2.42%) was noticed in Dakshina Kannada district. During 2020-21, the mean maximum disease incidence (18.53%) was recorded in Shivamogga district, followed by Davanagere (13.95%), and the least disease incidence (2.55%) was noticed in Dakshina Kannada district. Among several soil types surveyed, mean maximum disease incidence (11.14% in 2019-20 and 11.71% in 2020-21) was noticed in red sandy soils in both the years. During both the years, maximum mean disease incidence was noticed in palms of age group greater than 30 years old and in gardens where flooding method of irrigation was practiced.
