Abstract:

The prevalence and status of major fungal foliar diseases in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) in Western Himalayan state of Jammu & Kashmir was assessed in 2011 and 2012. A field survey was conducted in four commercial vegetable growing districts viz., Baramulla, Srinagar, Bandipora and Budgam in active growth period of the crop which revealed downy mildew, anthracnose, Alternaria leaf spot and powdery mildew to be the predominant diseases. The mean disease incidence of downy mildew, anthracnose, Alternaria leaf spot and powdery mildew was 34.0, 34.7, 35.5 and 33.0 and 41.3, 47.2, 45.6 and 39.7%, respectively, during 2011 and 2012. The mean disease intensity of respective diseases was 14.1, 16.1, 13.3 and 14.1 and 17.6, 20.8, 16.1 and 16.6% during 2011 and 2012. The highest incidence of these diseases, except powdery mildew, was observed in Srinagar while powdery mildew incidence was highest in Baramulla. These diseases need special attention in devising protection strategies of the crop.
