Abstract:

Banded leaf and sheath blight of maize caused by Rhizoctonia solani (teleomorph: Thanatephorus cucumeris), is a complex pathogen and worldwide in distribution, a very destructive disease under favorable weather conditions causes substantial yield losses. Temperature is one of the factors playing an important role in fungi growth and spread. The objective of the research was to study the effect of temperature on growth of R. solani was studied on the isolate of maize collected from N.E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, Pantnagar (29º N latitude, 79.3º E longitude), Uttarakhand, India. Among the mycelia and sclerotia inoculated plates, 30°C temperature was found significantly superior in mycelia radial growth after every 24 hours of incubation followed by 25°C, 35°C and 15°C. At 35°C production of sclerotia was found significantly superior followed by 30°C, 25°C and 15°C whereas at 0°C, 5°C and 40°C growth of mycelia and sclerotia formation restricted.
