The yield losses in maize due to turcicum leaf blight were determined by using two susceptible maize cultivars viz., CM-202 and CM-219 J under artificial epiphytotic condition. The experimented was conducted with two treatments i.e., inoculated with Exserohilum turcicum pathogen culture (conidiospores) through leaf whorl inoculation starting from 25 days after sowing and protected with spray of Hexaconazole @0.2 per cent. The maximum grain yield loss recorded in CM-219 J (37.64 %) followed by CM-202 (30.94 %).

Keywords: Turcicum leaf blight, Yield loss assessment, Maize, Exserohilum turcicum.
