Abstract:

Medicinal and Aromatic plants are economically important plants, rich in secondary metabolites, and are potential sources of drugs. The use of medicinal plants has attained an important role in health system all over the world. Various types of pathogenic infections play a major role in lowering the qualitative and quantitative production of medicinal plants. To record the current disease situation of such plants from different homestead gardens of Bolpur-Sriniketan block a study was undertaken during 2018-2019by using standard methods. Detail symptomatology and disease incidence of different medicinal and aromatic plants were recorded. Laboratory investigation like culturing of pathogen and microscopic investigation was made for confirmation of the disease. A number of diseases of such plants were recorded with mild to severe form in homestead garden under the study area. Among the diseases, leaf spot of aloe vera (Alternaria alternata), leafspot of asiatic pennywort (Curvularia sp.), leaf blotch of turmeric (Taphrina maculans), powdery mildew of holi basil (Erysiphe biocellata), anthracnose of periwinkle (Colletotrichum dematium), Alternaria blight of garlic (Alternaria porri) and canker of acid lime(Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri) were more common. White rot of Starthorn (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum) was also recorded in homestead garden. No abiotic diseases were observed during the investigation.
