Author(s): Dr. RK Bagri, Dr. Vipin Kumar and Manju Kumari
Abstract: Black scurf (Rhizoctonia solani) diseases of potato are becoming prominent in many potatoes growing state resulting in economic losses, since a decade. An experiment was conducted to find out more effective management approache through chemicals, taking cv. Kufri Bahar with five treatments involving chemicals i. e. Pencycuron (Moncern) and Boric acid, application before storage alone. Minimum disease incidence (17.25) and tuber yield (26.11 t/ha) was noticed in Tuber spray treatment with Pencycuron 22.9% (Moncern) @ 0.50 before planting alone followed by Tuber dip treatment with 3% boric acid or 10 min. before planting. These treatments can provide an effective management of potato tuber diseases
