Abstract

The mungbean crop suffers from several fungal diseases, among which anthracnose  caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is one of the serious disease observed regularly in mungbean growing areas of Gujarat and its incidence has increased alarmingly during the recent years in Gujarat. Among the nine fungicides at three concentrations were screened under in vitro condition against C. gloeosporioides by poisoned food technique revealed propiconazole, carbendazim (12%) + mancozeb (63%) and propineb completely inhibited the mycelial growth and proved to be most effective over rest of the treatments. The next best were azoxystrobin + difenconazole and trifloxystrobin + tebuconazole. Based on in vitro screening, promising fungicides were selected and re-evaluated under field condition against anthracnose of mungbean. Experiment under field condition revealed that anthracnose disease of mungbean can effectively managed by seed treatment with Thiram 75 SD,  3 g/kg seeds + two foliar sprays at 15 days interval starting from initiation of disease with trifloxystrobin + tebuconazole (75 WG), 0.075 per cent or with carbendazim + mancozeb (75 WP), 0.075 per cent. One of the key reasons for success of strobilurins that it gives a control of fungi from all four groups of plant pathogens i.e. Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Deuteromycota and Oomycota.
