Abstract:

Bacterial blight of Pomegranate caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. punicae has become a major constraint in important pomegranate producing states of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh of India. A field demonstration trials on management of Bacterial Blight was implemented as cluster approach in an five orchards having five years old ‘Bhagwa’ cultivar during the year 2014-15 and 2015-16 at Nidagallu hobli of Pavagada Taluk. Adoption of an integrated disease management schedule jointly developed by NRCP-Sholapur and IIHR, Bengaluru, which included practices like orchard sanitation, avoidance of rainy season crop (Mrig bahar) and regulating the Hasta bahar crop, judicious sprays of antibiotic like Streptocycline (500 ppm) in combination with fungicides like carbendazim (0.15%) or mancozeb (0.2%) or copper oxychloride (0.25%) or Bordeaux mixture (0.1%) at 15 days intervals based on the prevailing weather conditions of the cluster. It was evident that Bacterial blight per cent to the extent of 15.8 and 13.8% was recorded in September first and second fortnight pruned crop. Moderate disease intensity was recorded in October pruned crop and more disease severity of 60.7% was recorded in November second fortnight pruned crop owing to the prevalence of congenial weather factors such as temperature, relative humidity and rainfall. Results of the study on rest period indicated that minimum disease index of 6.59% was recorded in the crop given six months rest and high disease severity of 80.36% was recorded in crop given one month rest.
