Afield experiment was conducted to study, the effect of soil solarisation for the control of S. rofsii pathogen causing stem rot of chilli. Solarisation is a covering the soil with transparent polythene sheet (400 gauges) for 6 week during hot summer months (May and June) showed an increase in the soil temperature (up to 4-60C) and conservation of moisture (5%) when compare to unsolarised plot(as control). In a field experiment naturally infected soil with stem rot of chilli, with ten replication carried out during 2008-09, 2009-10 and found that a significant reduction disease incidence was recorded in solarised plot as against non solarised plot (control).The average soil temperature (50C) were increases (41.8-46.40C) which is lethal to soil pathogen and decreases disease incidence. A pot experiment were also conducted in net house during 2009-10 sowing 25 seeds per 30cm.diameter earthen pots having four treatment and three replications and found maximum disease incidence (100%) in control (uncovered with polythene and non-irrigated as compared to covered with polythene and irrigated pots(20%).

Keywords: Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.), Sclerosium rolfsii Sacc, Soil solarisation and Stem rot.
