Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to study the Management of blast of Paddy in rice (var jehlum) caused by Pyricularia oryzea under temperate conditions of Kashmir for Technology assessment of Different locally available fungicides that were evaluated against the pathogen Pyricularia oryzea, the Treatments comprised of Hexaconazole: T1 @ 0.03%, Captan: T2 @ 0.3%,Mancozeb: T3 @ 0.3%, Copper oxychloride: T4 @ 0.3%, Propineb: T5 @ 0.3%, Flusilazole : T6@ 0.01%, T7:Tricyclozole @ 0.06%, T0: Control. Each Treatment includes Seed treatment+ Foliar Spray at 25 Days after Transplanting (DAT) + 60 DAT+ at flowering stage. The significant results were obtained with Application of Tricyclozole @ 0.06%, The maximum yield 46.90 qt/ha, seed germination 91.60% and lowest blast incidence 2.20% were recorded in Tricyclozole treated plots as compared to farmers Practice wherein the farmers were not eradicating the collateral weed hosts and infected stubbles. The farmers were sowing the seeds without any treatment of fungicides as recommended by the SKUAST-K. The farmers were satisfied so far as Subsequent germination & yield obtained were redressed during the conduct of on farm trial. The results suggested that seed treatment of Tricyclozole @ 0.06%, before sowing of the crop effectively control paddy blast. As far as Economics is concerned, the farmers practice obtained the Net Return (Profit) of Rs.1224/ha as compared with treatment of application of Tricyclozole @ 0.06% obtained the Net Return (Profit) of 47800 Rs/ha with B:C ratio of 1.59.
