Abstract:

The field trials were conducted at the experimental farm of the Department of Plant Pathology, Dr Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan during the period 2014 and 2015. A total nine fungicides and five bio-formulations were screened for their efficacy in controlling the Cercospora leaf spot disease of the marigold. Bavistein and Captan gave the best disease control and the disease severity recorded were 12.37% and 17.41% respectively. Lesser disease reduction was recorded in Cabriotop (18.58%), Acrobat (21.10%), Insignia (24%), Alitte (25.28%), Metiram (26.93%), Matco (28.03%) and Antracol (30.36%). Among bio-formulations Garlic Extract + Cow urine +Soap Nut, cow urine and garlic extract were found best with the disease severity viz. 15.36%, 18.07% and 19.61 respectively. While the least effective bio-formulation were field formulation (31.10%) and soap nut (32.13%).
