ABSTRACT

 

Chilli crop suffers from various diseases in which anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum capsici is a very serious one, causes huge yield losses in India. The present investigation was carried out to find out its suitable control measures by evaluating different fungicides including botanicals and bio-agent first in vitro followed by in field at MES, Vegetable Science, ANDUAT, Kumarganj, Ayodhya. In vitro propiconazole @ 0.1% and hexaconazole @ 0.1% completely inhibited growth of the fungus followed by copper oxychloride @ 0.4%, garlic bulb extract @5% and NSKE @ 5% and Trichoderma harzianum @5% which inhibited (80.88%) mycelial growth of the fungus. In field conditions seed treatment with T. harzianum + Foliar spray with propiconazole was found best with minimum disease intensity (9.37%) and highest yield (151.42 q/ha) in comparison to other treatments.
