BIOEFFICACY OF FUNGICIDES FOR MANAGEMENT OF BLOSSOM BLIGHT OF MANGO (MANGIFERA INDICA)S.V. Kolase, S.M. Jogdand, Tejas Kambale and S.S. Kulkarni
The present investigation, bioefficacy of fungicides for management of blossom blight of mangowas carried during 2012-13 in the Department of Plant Pathology and Agricultural Microbiology, MPKV, Rahuri. Three non-systemic (one combination of product) and two systemic fungicides were tested against Colletotrichum gloeosporioides for radial growth inhibition on the potato dextrose agar media using poisoned food technique under in-vitro condition. Among fungicides carbendazim+ mancozeb was found to be most effective which inhibited 89.66 per cent growth of the fungus at 0.1% concentration. Similarly, 89.38 per cent inhibition was observed in case of mancozeb at 0.25 per cent concentration, followed by carbendazim (86.32%) at 0.1% concentration. This was followed by propineb (58.57%) at 0.3% and thiophanate methyl (57.35%) at 0.1 percent concentration.
