Mustard (Brassica juncea L.) belongs to Family Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) and genus Brassica. Albugo candida the causal organism of the white rust/ blister of the rapeseed- mustard occurs in all parts of the world where cruciferous crops are grown. It is one of the important diseases of rapeseed-mustard in India causing a yield loss of 17-34 per cent. The use of resistant varieties is considered to be the best and cheapest method of managing the plant disease. Out of tested 30 genotype cultivars none was found free to this disease. Nine genotype viz., Bioysr and DRMRIJ-12-40, DRMR-2019, NDRE-08-14-01 and DRMRIJ-12-40, were observed to be moderately resistant to the disease. Disease management evaluation of different fungicides, chemical with different combination The maximum yield viz., Single spray propiconazale 25EC (0.5%), single spray metalaxyl 8% mencozeb 64% wp(0.2%), single spray of hexaconazole 25EC (0.05%), single spray of difenconazole 25EC (0.05%), single spray propiconazole 25EL (0.05%), T1 followed by T2, T1 followed by T1, followed by T4, and T1 followed by T5. The maximum yield was obtained from single spray propiconazole 25 EL (0.05%) treated plots.
