Abstract:

Grain mold is economically important disease of sorghum. For Management of sorghum grain mold various chemicals were screened for efficacy and management of grain moldunder field conditions. Four different fungicides viz., Hexaconazole, carbendazim, thiram+mancozeb, propiconazole and two control treatments i.e. one water spray and one absolute control were evaluated for control of sorghum grain mold. Among all treatments three spray of propiconazole 25% ECat 0.025%. was the best treatment with highest grain yield and straw yield at both locations viz., Navsari and Waghai followed by hexaconazole 5% SC at 0.05%, propiconazole treatment recorded grain yield (1364.20 kg/ha.) and stover yield of (4694.44 kg/ha.) while hexaconazole treatment recorded grain yield (1319.44 kg/ha) and straw yield of (3765.43 kg/ha)in pooled mean of both locations. In determination of percent disease incidence (PDI%) spray of propiconazole 25% EC at1ml/litre recorded lowest disease incidence in pooled (3.00 %) followed by hexaconazole 5% SCat0.05% (3.15%).
