Abstract:

Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) is one of the major pulse crop of tropics and sub tropics, cultivated by small and marginal farmers under rainfed condition. It is known to be affected by many fungal diseases among them dry root rot caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola (Taub.) Butler, is a major soil borne disease causing considerable yield loss in most of the pigeonpea growing regions of India more so in the North-Eastern Karnataka. Keeping this in view, an intensive roving survey was carried during the month of October-November 2015 in the farmer’s field at Raichur, Kalaburgi, Yadgir and Bidar districts to know the incidence of the disease. The mean maximum dry root rot incidence was noticed in Kalaburgi district (24.72 %) followed by Raichur (17.78 %) and least in Yadgir (9.44 %).


Keywords: Dry root rot, Rhizoctonia bataticola, Disease incidence, BSMR-736.
