Author(s): Puja Pandey, KPS Kushwaha and Vinod Upadhyay
Abstract: Field experiments were conducted to study the influence of sowing date on the severity of downy mildew and yield of field pea. It was found that disease severity increased gradually in crops sown between 31st October and 21st November and decreased between 28th November and 5th December. The result depicts that maximum disease severity, AUDPC, infection rate and lowest grain yield (24.87%, 430.54, 0.279 and 208.42 kg/ha respectively) in crops sown on 28th November which was significantly different with early and late sown crops. Significantly, lower disease severity, AUDPC, infection rate and highest grain yield (8.10%, 84.07, 0.242 and 833.67 kg/ha respectively) was found in crops sown on 31st October.
