Abstract:
Jasmine is one of the important commercial flower crop of coastal Karnataka regarded as the queen of flowers and is called as "Belle of India" or the "Queen of fragrance" as it is highly scented to soothe and refresh. It is reported that there are 300 varieties of jasmine. Jasmine is a major traditional flower crop of our country. Although more than 2,000 species are known, 40 species have been identified in India and 20 species are cultivated in South India (Bhattacharjee, 1980). There are some other important cultivars like Mysore Mallige (Jasminum grandiflorum) and Hadagali Mallige (Jasminum auriculatum). Recently, Mysore Mallige, Udupi Mallige and Hadagali Mallige have been registered under the Intellectual Property Rights (Chaitanya et al., 2018). Jasmine or Udupi mallige is affected by major fungal disease i.e wilt casused by Fussarium solani causing 60-70 per cent yield loss. From studies under taken for three years it is confirmed that soil drenching with fungicide Hexaconazole 5% EC @ 0.1% twice @ 20 days interval recorded lowest percent disease incidence i.e 11.68%, with highest per cent disease control (82.66%) which is on par with application of FYM enriched with consortia of bio-agents (Trichoderma harzianum + Pseudomonas fluorescens) @ 200 g recorded the 80.46% reduction over the untreated control with the highest yield 665.74 Kg/ ha and 608.08 Kg/ ha respectively.
