Abstract:

Anthracnose of sorghum caused by Colletotrichum graminicola (Glomerella graminicola) is an important sorghum malady in India. The pathogen exhibits good tolerance to varied ranges of agroclimatic conditions over the globe and causes substantial economic losses. The present investigation was carried out during 2016 and 2017 kharif season at Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur with aimed to find out a sustainable management of anthracnose by using different fungicides and botanical (Neem oil) either individually or in combination. Different treatments were tested in the field growing moderately susceptible dual purpose sorghum cultivar Raj. Chari-2. The two years pooled data results were revealed that application of Carbendazim 50% wp @ 0.2% seed treatment (ST) + two foliar spray of neem oil @ 0.5% at 7 days interval showed minimum disease (PDI) 24.0% with maximum 67.14 per cent disease control (PEDC) and highest (32.35 q/ha and 231.82 q/ha) grain and fresh green fodder yield respectively compare to other treatments over control. Followed by this seed treatment (ST) with Saaf (Carbendazim 12% + Mancozeb 63% wp) @ 0.3% + two foliar spray of neem oil @ 0.5% was also found effective for the management sorghum anthracnose. Application of botanicals seems batter to reduce the chemical residual effect in fodder and grains. Such treatment signifies the synergistic action of chemicals and botanicals in combined application against pathogens.
