The study was laid out to find out the peak disease incidence period of leaf spot of Sapota (Achras sapota) and to evaluate the effect of six fungicides in controlling the disease. A total of five sprays were applied at 15 days intervals during dry season (November-January). It has been observed that the peak incidence period of leaf spot disease was higher in November to January. All fungicides were found effective significantly in controlling leaf spot disease over control. Among the fungicides, Bavistin (0.1%) and Dithane M-45 (0.2%) were found better in controlling the disease.
