RUST DISEASE OF LENTIL AND ITS MANAGEMENT THROUGH ESSENTIAL OILS IN TARAI REGION OF UTTARAKHANVijay Kumar and Md. Nadeem Akhtar
Field experiments were carried out to manage rust of lentil during Rabi season of 2007-08 and 2008-09. Prophylactic spray of neem oil during 2007-08 resulted minimum disease severity (30.0%) and highest grain yield (603 kg/ha) followed by jatropha oil (32.3% disease severity and 585 kg/ha yield), and mustard oil (32.6% disease severity and 517 kg/ha grain yield). Similarly during 2008-09, again neem oil resulted minimum disease severity (31.3%) and maximum grain yield (504 kg/ha) followed by jatropha oil (33.6% disease severity and 475 kg/ha grain yield) while, mustard oil sprayed plots resulted 35.6% disease severity and 465 kg/ha grain yield during both crop seasons. All the treatments resulted better in respect of disease severity and grain yield in comparison to control plot.
