Author(s): Kubde AV, Raghuwanshi KS, Surnar ST and Anarse JB
Pomegranate wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum gained momentum now days. Losses incurred by wilt disease increasing day by day which results into huge economic loss of pomegranate growing farmers of Western Maharashtra region. In vitro experiment was conducted to find out effective fungicides for the management of pomegranate wilt. Different eleven fungicides were tested against Fusarium oxysporum in laboratory conditions. Among the tested fungicides propiconazole 25% EC, hexaconazole 5% EC, tricyclazole 75% WP and carbendazim 50% WP significantly inhibited mycelium growth of test pathogen (100%) and noted to be at par with each other. Next best fungicide was difenconazole 25% EC (81.00%) followed by, chlorothalonil 75% WP (78.30%), bordeaux mixture 1% (75.53 %), copper oxychloride 50% WP (59.03 %), metalaxyl 35% WS (58.57%), fosetyl-al 80% WP (53.43%) and least growth inhibition recorded by captan 50% WP (45.67%).
