Abstract:

Alternaria leaf spot of bottle gourd is one of the most important diseases of bottle gourd [Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standl.]. The present study was, therefore, carried out to know the status of the disease in Kashmir valley. The disease was found prevalent in all the vegetable growing areas of Kashmir valley surveyed. The overall mean disease incidence and intensity ranged from 9.25 to 12.4 per cent and 2.9 to 4.36 per cent, respectively, during the pre-flowering stage of the crop. However, during fruit development stage, the increased incidence and intensity was recorded which ranged from 22.35 to 23.76 and 6.1 to 6.6 per cent, respectively. The maximum disease incidence of 12.4 and 23.76 per cent and intensity of 4.36 and 6.60 per cent, respectively during first and second stage of survey was observed in district Budgam and minimum disease incidence of 9.25 and 22.35 per cent and intensity of 2.9 and 6.1 per cent, respectively, was in district Anantnag. Further, during second stage of survey fruit infection and unmarketable culls were also recorded. The maximum fruit infection and unmarketable culls were found in district Budgam7.48 and 28.44%, respectively.
