Abstract:

Myrothecium leaf blight disease caused by Myrothecium roridum causes loss in seed cotton up to 15-20 per cent. The disease appears in the form of minute spots, which get enlarged and coalesce to form irregular spots. Later the necrotic area dry and withers giving rise to shot hole. Considering the importance of the disease, management studies have been conducted for the control of Myrothecium leaf blight of Cotton. Among the eleven fungicides evaluated under in-vitro by poison food technique cent per cent inhibition of mycelial growth was recorded in Carbendazim 12% + Mancozeb 63% WP and Hexaconazole 4% + Zineb 68% WP by 100% followed by Carbendazim 50% WP with 98.2% and Tebuconazole 25.9% EC with 97.9%. The minimum inhibition was recorded in Azoxystrobin 23% SC with 13.6%.
