Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Dry Farming Research Station, Junagadh Agricultural University, Jam-Khambhalia, Gujarat, India to study the efficacy of various neem base preparations including wet table sulphur against powdery mildew disease of mustard caused by Erysiphe cruciferarum during three consecutive rabi season of 2007-08 to 2009-10. The three years field study revealed that neem leaf extract 2% was most effective in limiting the incidence of powdery mildew of mustard with 38.35 per cent disease incidence (PDI) and seed yield of 2013 kg/ha. The corresponding maximum per cent oil (33.97), protein (16.69) and test weight (5.38 g) were also recorded higher in the treatment of neem leaf extract. However, wet table sulphur 0.2% was the best among all treatments tried and exhibited minimum 33.98 PDI with maximum seed yield 2154 kg/ha, higher oil and protein content (34.12 and 17.11%) and 1000 seed weight 5.58 g. But, in view to avoid hazardous effects of fungi toxicants, neem base preparation particularly neem leaf extract at 2% was found an alternative way for safe and effective strategy for eco-friendly management of powdery mildew disease of mustard in North Saurashtra region of Gujarat.
