Abstract

This experiment was carried out under field conditions in the field of Agronomy department during the Rabi 2008-09 cropping season, IGKV, Raipur to assess the effect of intercropping and moisture conservation practices against linseed wilt. The plot size was 4.2 × 4m and susceptible cultivar, Kartika was intercropped with Wheat + Linseed (2:2), Wheat + Linseed (4:4), Wheat + Linseed (6:4), Gram + Linseed (2:2), Gram + Linseed (4:4), Gram + Linseed (6:4), Lentil + Linseed (2:2), Lentil + Linseed (4:4), Lentil + Linseed (6:4), Sole Linseed. For moisture conservation susceptible cultivar, LMH-62 were sown in rainfed condition. The percent mortality was lowest in the treatment T7 Lentil + Linseed (2:2) (10.86 %) followed by T5 Gram + Linseed (4:4) (11.90 %), T3 Wheat + Linseed (6:4) (12.75 %) over the control. The percent mortality was lowest in the treatment T2 straw mulching @ 10 t/ha (33.27 %) followed by T4 Incorporation of FYM in the soil @ 10 t/ha (44.42 %) over the control.
