Abstract:

Present investigations were undertaken at Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. Aonla or Indian gooseberry, Emblica officinalis Garten, is an important horticulture crop of India. It is a rich source of vitamin C and used in various ayurvedic medicines. Penicillium islandicum, which was, earlier, a minor disease, but now become a major disease of Inadian gooseberry. The present study revealed that resistance and susceptibility against the blue mould rot (Penicillium islandicum) disease can be observed among the varieties of E. officinalis suggesting that the resistant ones should be preferred for further plantation activities to avoid the frequent damage and losses caused by the disease. Nine commercial varieties (Desi, Hathizool, Kanchan, Krishna, Chakaiya, Banarsi, NA-7, NA-9, NA–10) were also tested for their comparative resistance against Penicillium islandicum. In varietal screening against blue mould rot, least disease intensity was recorded in Desi (2.67%) and Kanchan (3.33%) while maximum disease intensity was observed in Chakaiya (50.00%) and Banarsi (49.33%).
