Abstract:

The field trials were conducted during rainy season of 2013 and 2014 for disease management of Alternaria leaf blight in bottle gourd through botanicals, fungicides, bio-agent and their combinations. Among 17 treatments, combined treatment of carbendazim (Seed treatment) @ 0.1% + mancozeb (Foliar spray) @ 0.25% + Pseudomonas fluorescens (Foliar spray) @ 5.0% + neem leaf extract (Foliar spray) @ 5.0% was found the most effective with minimum disease incidence of 9.25%, minimum disease severity of 7.07% and maximum disease control (78.23%), followed by mancozeb ST @ 0.25% + carbendazim (FS) @ 0.1% + Pseudomonas fluorescens CIAH-196 (FS) @ 5.0% + neem leaf extract (FS) @ 5.0% having disease incidence (11.15%), disease severity (8.98%) and disease control (72.35%) for management of Alternaria leaf blight of bottle gourd.
