Author(s): MD Sangani, LF Akbari and SV Lathiya
Abstract: Cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba (L.) Taub.) is one of the most important legume crops grown in India. Powdery mildew caused by Leveillula taurica is one of the major constraints in the production of cluster bean. In order to find out the efficacy of various fungicides against Leveillula taurica experiment was carried out under in vivo condition during Kharif, 2013. Out of nine fungicides tested, propiconazole (0.025 %) was the most effective fungicides with 16.42 per cent mean disease intensity. The second effective treatment was wettable sulphur (0.2 %) with 22.42 per cent mean disease intensity, which was statistically at par with hexaconazole, difenoconazole and dinocap with mean disease intensity of 22.86, 22.97 and 25.30 per cent, respectively. Sulphur dust and picoxystrobin were found moderately effective with 28.71 and 28.82 per cent disease intensity, respectively. Per cent disease control ranged from 55.91 to 74.88. Maximum disease control of 74.88 per cent was observed in the treatment of propiconazole followed by treatment wettable sulphur by 65.69 per cent as compared to control. Minimum disease control was found in the treatment of picoxystrobin with disease control of 55.91 per cent.
