Abstract:

Sweet sorghum is an important fodder crop, besides which can be used for the multiple purposes like grain, jaggery making and ethanol production. Leaf blight caused by the Exserohilum turcicum is an important disease affecting the sorghum. Studies on epidemiology of the disease were conducted at Main Agricultural Research station, UAS, Dharwad during kharif 2017. Study indicated that, significantly positive correlation was observed with morning and evening relative humidity, rainfall and number of rainy days without any association with maximum and minimum temperature at 0.01 level. Whereas, host range studies indicate that, grain sorghum, bajra, foxtail millet and Johnson grass expressed the symptoms under artificial inoculations with E. turcicum. However, grain sorghum and Johnson grass showed the symptoms under natural conditions also.
