Abstract: Stem rot or stem blight or white blight or white rot of Indian mustard incited by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Lib.) de Bary is an economically important yield reducing disease that has been widely reported in the last few years in India and elsewhere. Five systemic acquired resistance (SAR) activators in addition to carbendazim (standard check) were used against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum both in vitro and pot experiments. Salicylic acid was found cent per cent inhibitory at 200 ppm. while in pot conditions, azoxystrobin (26.00%) followed by salicylic acid (35.32%), as compared to control (52.20%). Maximum reduction in disease intensity over control was osberved with azoxystrobin (50.19%) followed by salicylic acid (32.34%) over control as seed soaking.
