Abstract:

Bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) is one of the most important cucurbitaceous vegetable crops being grown both during warm and rainy season in northern parts of India. It has wide genetic diversity and is grown throughout the tropics and subtropics of the world. But the crop is attacked by a number of diseases such as Alternaria leaf blight, Cercospora leaf spot, powdery mildew, downy mildew and anthracnose, amongst which Alternaria leaf blight caused by Alternaria cucumerina is found to cause serious losses throughout Rajasthan and other states. A field trail in kharif season in the month of August 2018 the effect of seed treatment with bio-agents and Neem oil were minimize the leaf blight disease intensity of bottle gourd. On the basis of single trail it was observed that seed treatment with Neem oil @2.5% + T. viride @2.5% was most in-effectual against leaf blight disease. The highest incremental cost benefit ratio of 1:2.91 was obtained in the treatment of Neem oil @2.5% + T. viride @2.5% followed by Neem oil @2.5% + Pseudomonas @2.5% (1:2.59).
