The present investigation entitled “Management of Alternaria Leaf Spot of Brinjal (Solanum melongena) caused by Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Keissler Through Botanicals” was carried out at Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali, Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal during year 2021 – 22. Brinjal is a highly productive crop and usually finds its place as poor man’s crop. Fruits are an excellent source of vitamin A, especially those in the ‘B’ group. Brinjal crop suffers from several diseases caused by various plant pathogens. Alternaria leaf spot caused by Alternaria alternata (Keissler) is an imported disease of brinjal crop in India. The result obtained in the present research study maximum mycelium growth of pathogen was observed on Potato dextrose agar media (88.75 mm) at 7th day and among the botanicals, maximum inhibition was recorded in Garlic (51.58 mm) followed by Turmeric (51.03 mm) at 15% of concentration.
