Abstract

Surveys conducted during Kharif 2014 and 2015 in major Basmati rice growing areas of Haryana revealed that the neck blast (Pyricularia grisea) incidence ranged from traces to 20% in commercially grown Basmati varieties. The average disease incidence was highest in Basmati CSR 30 (1.20-2.12%) followed by Pusa Basmati 1121 (1.09-1.60%) while it was the lowest (traces) in Pusa Basmati 1509. Out of 88 scented genotypes, five genotypes viz. HKR 08-425, HKR 10-579, HKR 11-509, PAB 21-663 and Pusa 1485-06-8-10-5-15-11 showed consistent resistance to leaf blast under natural epiphytotic conditions of uniform blast nursery during kharif seasons 2014 and 2015. Amongst fungicides evaluated against neck blast, combination of tricyclazole 45% + hexaconazole 10% WG @ 1.0 g/l was found to be the most effective and statistically at par with standard fungicide tricyclazole @ 0.6 g/l in reducing the neck blast incidence and enhanced grain yield of paddy variety, Basmati CSR 30 followed by combination of tricyclazole 18% + mancozeb 62% @ 2.5 g/l.
