Abstract:

Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) is an important Solanaceous crop widely grown in different parts of the country. Incidence of Phomopsis fruit rot was observed at 39th standard week (October 2016) till 3rd standard week (January 2017) and incidence ranged from 2.0-22.0%. Almost 10 time increase in fruit rot was recorded within 30 days during October 2016 when the average temperature 23.65ºC with 55.5% relative humidity having 9.3 sunshine hours. The incidence ranged from 4.0-13.0% during 56th standard week (maximum temperature 30.7ºC and minimum 13.6ºC with relative humidity (morning 82% and evening 92%) provided the congenial condition and incidence up to 13.0% was recorded. Bacterial wilt was not recorded at early stage however, the plant were infected during pre-fruiting incidence of bacterial wilt which ranged from 4.0-13.0% under natural field condition. The leaf spot (Cercospora melongenae) increased up to five times (3.0-15.0%) from 43rd-46th week when the average temperature was 18.2ºC with morning humidity 88%. and remained constant till 49th week. Pin prick method was better and typical symptoms on eggplant fruits were developed within 3-6 days in Pusa Round and 6-9 days in Pusa Purple long inoculated by Phomopsis vexans. In case of test virulence of Cercospora melongenae it took 4-6 days of development and 7-8 days in pusa round and Pusa Purple Long, respectively
