Pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.)R.Br.] one of the common millets grown as a nutrient-rich food source for human and as a fodder crop for livestock. Among the several diseases, the blast caused by Pyricularia grisea (Cooke) Sacc. has emerged as a serious disease affecting both forage and grain production in pearl millet resulting economic loss.Survey was carried out in major pearl millet growing districts of Madhya Pradesh viz., Morena, Bhind, Gwalior, Sheopur, Shivpuri, Datia, jhabua, Alirajpur presented in Table 7 to find out the incidence of Blast during July to nov. 2015-16 and 2016-17. None of the surveyed fields were free from the blast disease in localities of blast severity. The severity of Blast during 2015-16 and 2016-17 in the surveyed localities ranged from 1 to 5.48% and 3.6 to 13.8% respectively. Across the state among all pearl millet growing districts, in 2015-16, the maximum blast severity was observed in Tehsil Morena (5.48%) in Morena district, followed by 5.08% Morar (Gwalior), 4.92 % in Lahar (Bhind), 4.76% Seopur (Seopur), 4.24% Vijaypur (Seopur), 4.12% Shivpuri (Shivpuri). In 2016-17, the maximum blast severity was found 13.80% in Sabalgarh (Morena), followed by 12.92% Lahar (Bhind), 12.32% Joura (Morena), 11.48% Ater, (Bhind), 11.28% Morena (Morena), 11.24% Ambha (Morena).
