Onion is an important crop grown worldwide for its culinary and medicinal properties. One of the major bottlenecks in its production is the foliar blight disease. The disease is responsible for causing huge losses in its successful production. Pathogens isolated from the onion foliar blight symptomatic leaves for two successive cropping seasons were Alternaria alternata, A. porri, A. tenuissima, Stemphylium vesicarium, Cladosporium allii-cepae and Colletotrichum circinans. However, the relative occurrence of the pathogens varied during the cropping season.
