Author(s): RS Lad, RW Ingle, NG Dhurve and Manisha Solanki

Abstract: Safed musli (Chlorophytum borivilianum) is important medicinal herbaceous plant belongs to the family Liliaceae. The field experiment was carried out during 2014-15 at Nagarjuna Medicinal and Aromatic Plant Garden, Dr. P.D.K.V., Akola to see the different treatments of pigeon pea intercropping systems on incidence of root rot diseases and yield on safed musli. The root rot disease of safed musli is caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola, Fusarium solani, Sclerotium rolfsii. Lowest incidence of root rot was observed in treatment T2 of 3:1 intercropping system (safed musli + pigeon pea) at 62 DAS, 69 DAS, 83 DAS. The highest number of total and healthy bunches were obtained in the treatment T1 of 2:1 intercropping (safed musli + pigeon pea) and roots in T2 of 3:1 intercropping system (safed musli + pigeon pea) respectively.
