Abstract:

Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L. Millsp.) is one of the most important pulse in India. It is known to be affected by several pests and diseases however among these sterility mosaic disease is one of the most destructive disease and has become a major limiting factor for pigeonpea cultivation. Virus was not seed born in nature. None of the plants emerged from seed collected from diseased plants produced symptoms even though up to 45 days after emergence. Sterility mosaic virus was not transmitted by dodder from Pigeonpea to Pigeonpea, as none of the plants inoculated by fully parasitized dodder developed any symptoms up to 45 days. Mite (Aceria cajani) transmitted sterility mosaic virus disease to Pigeonpea and 90 per cent of the inoculated plants developed sterility mosaic disease symptoms 35 days after inoculation. Among these acaricides, T5 (Propargite @ 0.1% Two spray (1st spray at 25 DAS and 2nd spray 15 days after first spray) recorded significantly lowest sterility mosaic disease incidence of 7.72% with highest yield of 875 kg/ha.
