Abstract:
Recommended doses (200-250 gm acre-1) of five protectant and eradicant fungicides viz Banko (Chlorothalonil) 500 Sc, Score (Difenoconazole) 250 Ec, AcrobatMZ 90/600 WP, Metalaxyl+Mancozeb) 72 WP and Ridomil Gold (Mancozeb+Metalaxyl) 68 WP were tested against early and late blight diseases development on ten potato advance lines/varieties sown in a randomized complete block design in the research area of a private farm at Chiniot. All the fungicides reduced disease severity on most of the lines/varieties significantly compared to untreated control. However the effect of Metalaxyl+Mancozeb (72 WP), Ridomil Gold (68WP), Score (250 EC) and Banko (500 Sc) was pronounced on tolerant or moderately resistant varieties/lines compared to moderately susceptible or susceptible varieties/lines. Genetic potential of such lines/varieties was greatly exploited by the application of these fungicides. Cultivations of resistant/moderately resistant varieties along with timely one or two sprays of these fungicides will be helpful to control these diseases.
