Abstract:

 
Among fungicides treated plots the grain and fodder yield of maize were significantly higher and disease severity is minimum than control. Among tested fungicide minimum disease severity (18.15%), maximum grain yield (38.71 q/ha) and fodder yield (182.75 q/ha) was recorded in azoxystrobin 18.2% + difenoconazole 11.4% SC followed by tebuconazole 25.9 EC and hexaconazole 5 SC. Least effective fungicide is azoxystrobin 23 SC with 25.71%, 23.77 and 90.29 q/ha of disease severity, grain yield and fodder yield, respectively. The maximum percent grain yield and fodder yield were recorded in azoxystrobin (18.2%) + difenoconazole (11.4%) SC with 51.30% and 52.46%and minimum in azoxystrobin 23 SC with 20.69% and 3.76% increase over control.
