Abstract:

Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) is one of the most popular and favorite vegetable crops in different parts of the world. Most species are climbing perennial herbs. Cucumber contains 0.4 per cent protein, 2.5 per cent carbohydrates, 1.5 mg iron, and 2 mg of vitamin C in 100 mg of fresh weight. Powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe cichoracearum (D.C.) is an important disease of cucurbits, particularly, cucumber is highly susceptible to this disease and suffers heavy losses in all localities of Maharashtra State, wherever it is grown. Survey of Cucumber powdery mildew incidence and severity exercised in the Jalna and Aurangabad districts revealed that in Jalna district, the highest disease incidence was found on saini cultivar (47.28 %) in Chomanwadi village of Jalna tahsil and lowest incidence was found in swati cultivar (20.10 %) in Ramnagar village of Jalna tahsil. The highest disease severity was found on gypsy (34.65 %) in Garadkheda village of Partur tahsil and lowest severity was found in Swati cultivar (10.24 %) in Ramnager village of Jalna tahsil. The highest mean disease incidence was found in Partur tahsil (36.92 %) and the highest mean disease severity was found in Partur tahsil (24.75 %). In case of Aurangabad district, the highest disease incidence was found in saini cultivar (46.38 %) in Harnabadwadi village of Sillod tahsil and lowest incidence was found in Saini (20.53%) in Shendra village of Aurangabad tahsil. The highest disease severity was found in Gypsy (29.76%) in Wahegaon village of Gangapur tahsil and lowest severity was found in saini cultivar (13.26%) in Harsul village of Aurangabad tahsil.
