Author(s): HJ Kapadiya and AM Moradiya
Abstract: To know the effect of organic practices compared with chemical fungicide in management of groundnut disease under field condition. Ten treatments including a control were applied. Result revealed that seed treatment with Mancozeb 3g/kg seed followed by two sprays of Hexaconazole along with the application of recommended fertilizers (12.5N:25P) was very effectively reducing the collar rot (1.61%), stem rot (87%), tikka (19.55%), and rust (24.46%) with increasing pod (1896 kg/ha) and haulm (5484 kg/ha) yield and economical as compared to the application of FYM and biological control agents (organic farming). Application of FYM (7.5 tonne/ha) in place of NPK and Trichoderma viride as seed treatment @10 g/kg seed and in furrow @ 4.0 kg enriched in 250 kg FYM, T. viride foliar application @ 2.5 kg/ha 30 and 45 DAS was equally effective in increasing pod (1692 kg/ha) yield to realize higher income for the organic management of groundnut diseases. But, for the better management of foliar diseases, fungicide Hexaconazole is essential as it reduces the development of inoculums and further spreading of the diseases. Therefore, it is also concluded that although organic farming could reduce the soil borne diseases to some extent.
