Abstract:

Cercospora leaf spot caused by Cercospora cajani Henningsis one of the most important fungal diseases of Pigeon pea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.]. The disease is more destructive during kharif season. Laboratory and field experiments were conducted during kharif seasons 2011 at Pantnagar. Prophylactic spray of fungicides, bioagents and plant extracts significantly reduced disease severity and enhanced yield as well as thousand grain weight. Among the fungicides Roko sprayed plots showed lowest disease severity and higher yield and thousand grain weight followed by Bavistin. Among biocontrol agents lowest disease severity was recorded in Trichoderma harzianum followed by T. harzianum + P. fluorescens, through it was considerably higher in comparison to disease severity in fungicide sprayed plots. While in case of plant extracts minimum disease severity and increase in yield was observed in Neem leaf extract, followed by Kaner leaf extract.
