Abstract:

Studies on role of infected seed and crop debris in the survival of Didymella bryoniae incitant of blight in ridge gourd were conducted under temperate conditions of Kashmir valley. The studies revealed that the pathogen perpetuated in the form of spores on seeds and plant debris stored indoors under ambient laboratory conditions as these produced viable spores throughout the observation period of twelve months. The pathogen was also observed to survive in the form of spores on plant debris stored indoors under ambient laboratory conditions, however, perpetuated as a dormant mycelium on plant debris left on the soil surface in open and was unable to survive on plant debris buried 7.5 cm deep in soil.
