Abstract:

A field trial was conducted to evaluate effective management practices and to develop integrated management strategy for fungal diseases of tomato crop. The treatments comprised of sheep manure @ 3 kg/m2, mulching by mustard straw @ 4 kg/m2; seedling dip in Trichoderma harzianum, Pseudomonas fluorescence each @ 4 g/L water and carbendazim 50 WP @ 1 g/L water) and 2 foliar sprays of mancozeb 75 WP @ 0.2% followed by carbendazim 50 WP @ 0.05% 20 days after the onset of disease. The removal of basal infected leaves and foliar sprays with mancozeb 75 WP or carbendazim 50 WP proved best exhibiting a disease severity of 6.5% in case of Septoria leaf spot and a minimum disease severity of 1.6% in case of Alternaria loaf spot, while seedlings root dip in carbendazim 50 WP was least effective against both the diseases. Minimum rotted fruits (0.03 kg/plot was observed in spray treatments of mancozeb 75 WP @ 2 g/L water followed by carbendazim 50 WP @ 0.5 g/L water, whereas, T. harzianum (root dip @ 4 g/L water) resulted highest roted fruits (0.28 kg/plot). Different management practices like stacking in combination with fungicides could therefore be integrated for effective management of the diseases.
