Abstract:

Growing inclination towards Zero Budget Natural farming (ZBNF) in India to reduce expenditure on external input and to reduce indebtness of farmers, a study was under taken on evaluation of Jeevamrut, prepared by mixing cow dung, cow urine, pulse flour, jaggery and soil, and its constituents for management of Alternaria leaf spot caused by Alternaria alternata in organic mungbean under cage house condition as well as against the pathogen in-vitro, as the disease is quite destructive in all mungbean growing areas of southern Rajasthan. Among different components and final product of Jeevamrut, Jeevamrut-2 with the protocol as suggested by Palekar, was found most effective in inhibiting A. alternata in-vitro with mycelial growth inhibition of 93.34 per cent. Cow urine has also significant inhibitory effect against the test pathogen with mycelial growth inhibition of 92.23 per cent at 7.5 per cent concentration. Out of different organic inputs evaluated as spray applications for management of Alternaria leaf spot of mungbean, foliar spray of Jeevamrut-2 was found effective in managing the disease and also gave maximum PEDC of 75.2 followed by Jeevamrut-1 with 68.6 PEDC.
