Abstract:

To study the effect of weather parameters i.e. temperature and relative humidity on the development of blue mould rot (Penicillium islandicum Sopp.) on Indian gooseberry in vitro experiment were carried out at Post graduate laboratory, Department of Plant pathology, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. An interaction of three temperatures i.e. 10, 20 and 30ºC with relative humidity of 40, 60, 80 and 100 % was carried out at five and ten days after inoculation (DAI). Temperature of 30 ºC along with cent per cent relative humidity resulted in maximum disease incidence of 87 and 100% in both 5 and 10 DAI, respectively. Minimum disease intensity (15 and 22%) was recorded at 10 ºC temperature and 40 per cent relative humidity at 5 and 10 days after inoculation. However, with further increase in temperature and relative humidity, the per cent disease intensity was also increased and it also increased during the period of time (5 and 10 days after inoculation). Thus from the present study, it can be clearly elucidated that low temperature (10 ºC) with low relative humidity (40%) is ideal for the post harvest storage of Indian gooseberry.
