Four varieties and 7 treatments (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 sprays) constituted the 2- factorial experiment. is recognised as the second most serious disease, next to wilt (Meah and Khan,1988). Therefore, in total 84 plants were used. The methods and evaluations were the same described in the first experiment. For trees, prune out the dead wood and destroy the infected leaves. Soil amendments: Soil amendments by organic manures and inorganic fertilizers were applied separately and in combination during early May and late October 1992. Statistically the effect of Cowdung+MOC (ghani) was similar to NPK+ZnSO4+Gypsum although cowdung+MOC (ghani) applied plants showed more disease. Spraying of Zn reduced the deficiency problem in plants and might have given best satisfactory effect (100% over control) in the reduction of disease. Probably, the management approaches worked well under such above mentioned conditions. Thus there were 3 plants of each variety to constitute 3 replications of a single treatment. In another case B was less effective than Mn but both the elements reduced the disease significantly. • For post harvest treatment 20 min dip treatment in 500 ppm tetracycline is effective This is also a fungal disease that affects the fruit and growth … All of the mentioned minor elements are essentially required for plants. Five trees sprayed with compressed air sprayer containing 10L solution. Zn sprayed plants produced no disease and Mn, B sprayed plants produced minimum disease. Foliar spray: Two fungicides namely tilt [1-2-(2,4-Dichlorophenyl)-4-propyl-1, 3di ortho oxalen-2-Elmethyl-1 H 1,2,4-Tryozole] and rovral [1-isopropyl carbomoyl-3-(3,5-Dichlorophenyl) hydantoin] and three minor elements namely manganese (MnSO4), boron (HBO3) and zinc (ZnSO4,) were sprayed as solution on to the trees. MOC (ghani) and cowdung+MOC (ghani) caused 3.2 and 2.8% respectively. Well decomposed cowdung collected from the village was applied. … conducted to confirm the results of anthracnose control. Therefore steps are required to protect this palatable and highly nutritious fruits from the menace of anthracnose. The experiments were conducted to explore the possibility of integration of various approaches for control of guava anthracnose during fruiting seasons, 1992-93. One single plant was treated as one experimental unit, i.e., in a single plant no two chemicals or minor elements were applied. The total number of treatment combinations were 84 (= 4x7x3). Severely anthracnose infected fruits become fully unfit for consumption and lose food value and market price. Basic requirements Guava is mainly grown in the tropics and will tolerate temperatures between 15 and 45°C (59–113°F). Learn how to get rid of anthracnose in your lawn to get your healthy lawn back with our Anthracnose Treatment Guide. Guava fruit anthracnose as affected by soil amendments with various treatment showing their rate of application, percent fruit infection and per cent fruit surface area diseased at 60 days after treatment, Plants in the same plot receiving no treatment served as control. So anthracnose disease of guava is a serious problem in Bangladesh, especially for the commercial producers. Rovral also gave significantly better result against the disease. Neem oil spray is an organic, multi-purpose fungicide/insecticide/miticide that kills eggs, larvae and adult stages of insects as well as prevents fungal attack on plants. Varietal effects: Among the varieties, Kazipeyara carried the highest fruit infection, whereas Mukundpuri had the lowest infection. You can try spraying your plants with a copper-based fungicide, though be careful because copper can build up to toxic levels in the soil for earthworms … The prevalence of guava (Psidium guajava L.) fruit anthracnose was surveyed in three major guava‐producing areas of Bangladesh during 1987 and 1988. Anthracnose. Percent loss in fruit weight decreased with decrease in level of fruit infection owing to fungicide spray. Among fungal diseases of guava, anthracnose of guava, caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides (B. Weir and P.R. Stem canker and dry fruit rot. The application of chemicals is the preferred treatment for best results at keeping the mango trees healthy and productive. Tilt (0.2%) gave 100% reduction of fruit infection over control. Symptoms Spray solutions were prepared by mixing the definite amount of the chemicals with tap water in bucket. On an average 9.2% fruits in untreated plants were infected (Table 1). Guava fruit weight loss owing to anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloebsporioides) severity was estimated on the basis of critical point model. Hazardous effect of chemicals, their high price and market availability give the scope to think of alternatives. Percent fruit surface area diseased in the untreated plants was significantly higher than in the treated plants. One plant of a single variety was used as a replication. No disease developed for the treatment of cowdung, MOC (mill), MP, ZnSO4, Cowdung+MOC (mill), K+ZnSO4, NPK+tilt spray and NPK+Zn spray. For complete disease suppression, five sprays were required in Kazipeyara whereas in other varieties two sprays were sufficient (Table 2). However effect of all treatments were statistically similar. Values are average of five replications with two seasons. One set of plants were kept for control treatment receiving no manures and or fertilizers. Arnong the guava diseases anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Penz. The treatments with their doses are shown in Table 1. Fruit were evaluated daily for incidence and severity of anthracnose. In another experiment tilt, rovral, Mn, B and Zn at 1000, 500 and 2000 ppm respectively were sprayed separately for three times at 15 days interval starting from early fruit stage. MOC: Mustard Oil Cake, SOC: Sesame Oil Cake, TSP: Triple Super Phosphate, MP: Muriate of Potash. TSP, Cowdung+MOC (ghani) were less effective and urea, gypsum, cowdung+SOC and SOC were ineffective. Disease severity was higher in 1987 than in 1988. Similar observations were observed in fruit surface area infection except that rovral produced lower surface area infection (0.8%) than manganese (0.1%) treatment (Table 2). These two chemicals subject to their availability could be considered as potential fungicides to control guava anthracnose. Tilt and rovral were sprayed at the commercial rates (0.2%). Assessment of disease strategies: Total number of diseased and healthy fruit in each test plant were counted and per cent fruit infected were calculated on the basis of totality of healthy and diseased fruits. This plant finds applications for the treatment of diarrhea, dysentery, gastroenteritis, hypertension, diabetes, caries and pain relief and for improvement in locomotors coordination. Plants take their nourishment highly from NPK sources. Continued observation on fruit infection revealed that infections on untreated fruits increased with time, which at the time of 60 days after soil amendments resulted in 9.2% fruit infection. yield loss (Y) and disease severity (X) expressed in percentage. MOC and SOC were decomposed in water for 3 days before application. Both tilt and rovral proved as effective fungicides in controlling anthracnose of unripe fruits. Such fruits may be accept - able for some lower-quality local markets but are certainly not for shipping off-island. Rate of decline in fruit infections were quicker in rovral than in manganese and boron. Pathogen incidence and fruit weight were positively correlated with fruit rots. Guava (Pisidium guajava L.) is a common and important fruit crop in Bangladesh. Manures and fertilizers were applied in the furrows and then thoroughly mixed with soil. These results are very much promising from the view point of non-chemical control of guava fruit anthracnose. 1). Boron spray gave poorer results in comparison to all other treatments. Cowdung, MOC (mill), MP, ZnSO4, cowdung+MOC (mill) and K+ZnSO4 results 100% reduction in fruit infection over control. Minor elements, Zn, Mn, and B spray gave significant reduction … In other treatments fruit infections were reduced gradually with time comparatively more readily with PK+ZnSO4 and NPK+ZnSO4+ Gypsum and less slowly with cowdung+MOC (ghani) and MOC (mill) (Fig. Mango, Avacado, Lychee, Longan, - Duration: 7:46. At the time of data recording, total number of fruits, healthy fruits, diseased fruits in each test plant were counted. Soil amendments: Per cent fruit infected with anthracnose in the untreated plants were significantly higher than in the treated plants (Table 1). Ten fruits were selected randomly from each plant and considering the total surface area of en individual fruit as 100%, the diseased portion of it was estimated. Deshi fruits realized minimum loss whereas Kazipeyara had the more loss. 1). This disease can cause considerable postharvest losses and can affect young developing flowers and fruit. Minor elements, Zn, Mn, and B spray gave significant reduction in control of guava anthracnose. Four varieties: i) Kazipeyara ii) Mukundpuri iii) Sarupkatti and iv) Deshi were used in the experiment. Treating for anthracnose is much like any fungal turf disease, but it is important to understand when and how to treat for this turf fungus. Deshi variety had more infection than Mukundpuri. These two chemicals subject to their availability could be considered as potential fungicides to control guava anthracnose. The fungicide namely Tilt [Propiconazole = 1-2-(2,4-DichlorophenyI)-4-propyl 1,3-dioxalen-2-Elmethyl 1 H-1, 2,4-Triozolel at a single standard rate (0.2%) was applied to guava plants at 10 day intervals for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 times to create infection gradient. Among the treatments cowdung, MOC (mill), MP, ZnSO4, Cowdung+MOC (mill), K+ZnSO4 significantly reduced fruit infection followed by MOC(ghani), cowdung+MOC (ghani), PK+ZnSO4 and NPK+ZnSo4+Gypsum. There are reports that Colletotricum gloeosporioides thrives in media enriched with 0.8% KCl and increasing amount of potassium might be one of the factors promoting the pathogen at fruit maturity rather than earlier (Midha and Chohan 1971,1972). Tilt and Zinc gave 100% reduction in fruit infection followed by rovral and manganese sulphate, both of which produced 0.8% infected fruits. Severely anthracnose infected guava fruits become fully unfit for consumption and lose food value and market price. Results were very promising from the point of environmentally friendly control of guava fruit anthracnose. Anthracnose in fruit tropical trees part 1! Symbol- cd: cowdung, m: mill, g: ghani, ZS: ZnSO, Effect of fungicidal and minor element spray on severity in per cent fruit Infection, https://scialert.net/abstract/?doi=pjbs.2000.791.794, Guava fruit infection as affected by sprays of different fungicides and essential elements, Figure in a coulm with different letters differ at p=0.01. Many countries have a long history of using guava for medicinal purposes. The organic manures cowdung at 10 kg/tree, Mustard oil cake (MOC) (ghani), MOC (mill), Sesame oil cake (SOC) at 2 kg/tree and fertilizers urea, Tripple Super Phosphate (TSP), Muriate of Potash (MP), ZnSO4, Gypsum at 0.3, 0.3, 0.35, 0.005 and 0.01 kg/tree respectively were applied separately and in six combinations. This result is in agreement with Rahman and Hossain (1989) who reported that oil cake increased the disease severity. These factors might have helped in improving plant health and thereby reduced the disease incidence (Tamhani et al., 1970). Values are average of five replications with two seasons. ... DISEASES OF GUAVA AND IT'S MANAGEMENT - Duration: 22:14. Total surface area of an individual fruit was considered as 100%. Foliar spray: All the spray treatments significantly reduced fruit infection over control. Abstract. Therefore, this work was undertaken to show how the level of anthracnose infection governs the amount of fruit loss and to determine the effective number of chemical sprays to control fruit anthracnose. Foliar spray: No disease observed in tilt sprayed plants. Figures in a column with different letters differ at p = 0.01, Trend In Incidence of guava fruit anthracnose with time when soils were amended with manures (i) and fertilizers (ii). For this, disease occurrence was comparatively lower in combined application of cowdung+SOC. However cultural practices alone can not be an effective step. Therefore, further investigation of the effectiveness of the non-chemical management practices tried in the present study for control of guava anthracnose is required. Supplementation of minor essential nutrient element sometimes help in the reduction of incidence of disease. Fruit weight loss was estimated following multiple-treatment experiments which allowed comparison of the effect of different levels of anthracnose. Wilt is the most important disease of guava. is an important fruit of subtropical countries. But during the main season the varieties were found heavily infected with fruit anthracnose. Soil amendments: Soil amendment was convincing in relation to suppression of guava fruit anthracnose. Among the varieties, gain in fruit weight was higher in Kazipeyara followed by Sarupkatti. Disease severity (% fruit infection and % fruit area diseased) was recorded at 15 days interval for continuous 4 times starting 15 days after treatment. They found young immature guava fruits were free from infection while mature fruits were infected readily and this difference might be due to concentration of potassium ion at different developmental stages have been found. Soils when treated with cowdung, MOC (mill) and K+ZnSO4, the guava plant did not develop fruit infection. Use a knife that is disinfected before each cut. a common fungus that is a problem for a wide range of plant types, including This disease can cause considerable postharvest losses and can affect young developing flowers and fruit. To evaluate the effectiveness of the different treatments, the severity of disease was recorded 4 times at 15 days interval with first recording at 15 days after the treatment. Fruit Canker (Restalotia psidii Pat.) The zero level of infection as maintained through fungicide spray created basis for apparently actual fruit weight and its use for comparison with fruit weights obtained at different levels of anthracnose infection (James, 1974). Cultural control is one of them (Chapman, 1975; Reuther and Labanauskas, 1975; Malraja, 1990; Raut, 1990; Singh et al., 1990). A total of 10 diseases have been reported on guava in Bahgladesh (Meah and Khan,1987).Arnong the guava diseases anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Penz. TSP, cowdung+MOC (ghani) were less effective but urea, gypsum, cowdung+SOC, and SOC were ineffective. Manures also supply all of the essential major and minor elements. The organic manures, cowdung, MOC (mill) and their combinations improved the soil properties like texure, structure, aeration, water holding capacity etc. Two approaches-i) soil amendment with organic manures and inorganic fertilizers and ii) foliar spray of fungicides and essential minor elements were designed. Critical point model (James, 1974) is based on the regression of percent yield loss against percent disease severity. First recording was done 24 days after the spray and it continued for five times at an interval of 7 days i.e., up to fruit maturity. Assessment of fruit anthracnose severity Before start of spraying schedule, NPK fertilizers were applied mixing with the rizosphere soil of the guava plants receiving recommended dose as 0.3, 0.3, 0.35 kg/tree respectively but no spray of fungicides or minor elements served as control. However, disease under natural condition is regulated by natural factors temperature, humidity and rainfall which vary from season to season and year to year. UH–CTAHR Mango Anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides) PD-48 Aug. 2008 Mango anthracnose symptoms on fruits Above, a basket of anthracnose-diseased mango fruits at a farmer’s market in Hilo, Hawai‘i. Deficiency of any one of the above elements makes plants vulnerable to disease. In the absence of NPK, plants become weak and at this condition gypsum would not be able to resist the disease singly (Ferdous, 1990). Critical point model for yield loss assessment was applied using both the variables i.e. Probably, the success may be attributed to low disease incidence in the experimental site during the study period. Foliar sprays or seed treatments with fungicides containing copper sulfate can be used to lower the risk of infection. Observation after each spray indicated a slow but steady decrease in new fruit infections in treated plants. Physalopara psidii Stevens &Pierce and Diplodia netalensis Evans. The experiment was conducted following Completely Randomised Block Design (CRBD) with 3 replications. Fruit infection in urea and TSP treated plants also increased but still at slower rate. Manganese, boron, and zinc were sprayed at the rate of 1000, 500 and 2000 ppm respectively. Once the plant is afflicted with anthracnose, there is no optimal cactus anthracnose control. The purpose of the present study was to explore the possibility of integration of various approaches for control of guava anthracnose. • Effective control of anthracnose can be achieved by sprays of Bordeaux mixture (3:3:50) at 7 days interval. Significant response was increased in the growth at low levels of KCl. Very slight infection occurred in those plants which were treated with NPK+ZnSO4+gypsum (0.18%), PK+ZnSO4 (0.3%) and MOC-ghani (1.8%) i,e, these treatments showed 98.04, 96.7 and 80.4 % reduction respectively. Fruit area infections of randomly selected 5 fruits per plant were recorded. This phenomenon continued until no fruit weight loss occurred at the end of 5 sprays when virtually no fruit infection occurred. Similar trend was observed in SOC, cowdung+SOC and gypsum treated plants but at apparently at a slower rate. Anthracnose is the most commonly observed disease that affects both pre- and postharvest management of guava. Probably the combination was incompatible for disease control rather it might have produced another reaction (unknown) for which disease incidence increased. Sarupkatti had higher infection than Mukundpuri but less than Deshi (Table 1). Guava (Pisidium guajava L.) is a common and important fruit crop in Bangladesh.But guava plants are susceptible to many fungal diseases. They found oil cake increased the disease severity while high dose of NPK reduced it. Hot water treatment of seeds or fruits (48°C for 20 minutes) can kill any fungal residue and prevent further spreading of the disease in the field or during transport. This treatment proved ineffective. This result partially coincides with the result described by Rahman and Hossain (1988) for control of guava anthracnose. Cowdung+MOC (ghani), TSP, Urea amended plants suffered from moderate infection of fruit anthracnose. Spraying were started from early fruit stage (fruit setting) and was continued for 3 sprays at an interval of 15 days. These results corroborate with the reports of Hossain and Meah (1992) who reported that rovral flo and rovral wp when used with sticker reduced 90-96% guava fruit infection. Incidence of fruit anthracnose on different guava varieties during the main season (non-sprayed), Figures in the column having same letters do not differ significantly at p = 0.01, Severity (% fruit infection) of guava fruit anthracnose under fungicide spray gradient, Average fruit weight and % fruit weight loss in four varieties of guava under fungicide spray gradient, https://scialert.net/abstract/?doi=pjbs.2000.1234.1236, Relation between anthracnose disease level and percent fruit weight loss in four varieties of guava. In another report Midha and Chohan (1970) described that Colletotricum gloeosporioides showed no significant response up to a concentration of 0.7% of KCl. First approach was done in two adjacent homestead garden and second approach was done in AIC fruit firm. Urea and TSP had less effect over disease development when these were used singly. Introduction. Spray early in the day, and avoid applications during hot weather. Percent fruit weight loss ranged from 16.4% (Deshi) to 30.4% (Kazipeyara). These factors affect the effectivity too. In other varieties per cent fruit weigh loss was zero with only two consecutive sprays (Table 3). Reports of successful chemical control of the disease are available (Hossain, 1993; Hossain and Meah, 1992; Kabir and Meah, 1987; Midha and Chohan, 1972; Pathak, 1986; Raghavan and Saksena, 1978; Rahman and Hossain, 1988; Tandon and Singh, 1969). In this study cowdung produced no disease and MOC (ghani) produced slight disease infection when applied singly. SOC, cowdung+SOC, gypsum produced highest disease in order of their efficacy. Besides it is a great threat to germplasm preservation. Percent fruit weight loss was positively correlated with fruit anthracnose level. Colletrotrichum gloesporiodies is the causal agent of anthracnose in guava, and proliferates during the storage period. Johnst), gets more attention and is the most commonly observed disease that can affect young developing flowers, fruit and has been reported in all guava-growing areas around the world (Kumar et al., 2007). Based on the above discussion it is evident that soil amendments with manures and fertilizers caused marked effects on guava fruit anthracnose infestation when no disease developed. Gypsum alone had no effect on development of disease. The disease incidence was negligible in four varieties of guava during minor season. And this might be one of the factors promoting pathogen growth at maturity of the fruits and not when it was young or immature (Sastry, 1965). This way the anthracnose spores won’t have a place to overwinter. Patel and Pathak (1993) reported 6.6% of guava fruit weight loss and incidence of fruit rots caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and other fungi. The figures indicate percent reduction in fruit weight loss at a specific level of anthracnose infection. Weights of fruits selected for estimation of disease severity were also recorded after harvest. It can attack many different types of plants, from grasses to flowering trees such as dogwood. non-infected guava fruit was significantly higher than the anthracnose infected guava fruit in carbohydrates, crude fibre, ash, fat, protein, Ca, Fe and P. A significant reduction in the price of guava was found associated with anthracnose infected fruits in all the 3 major market surveyed. For this purpose, only ripe ‘Kumagai’ guavas were treated with 1 μmol∙L−1 MJ, inoculated 48 h after MJ treatment had started. Similar observations have been reported by Malraja (1990) in spraying of Zn, Cu, Mn, Mg and Fe that reduced the incidence of disease of which Cu spray recorded least incidence of fruit rot in chilli. Many commercial producers think to give up the cultivation of guava owing to a great loss by the disease. Significant means were compared employing DMRT. Save your trees! Gradient of fruit anthracnose severity was created through varied levels of fungicide spray. High prevalence of the disease even in epidemic form has been reported every year from different parts of the country (Meah and Khan,1987; Rahman, 1989). Guava will grow optimally between 23 and 28°C (73–82°F) but established trees can tolerate short periods at -3 to -2°C (27-28°F) although temperatures below 15°C (60°F) can cause the tree to cease producing fruit. The whole surface of the plant including both surface of leaves, buds, twigs, fruits and branches were well sprayed by the solution of the fungicide. In Kazipeyara the fruit weight loss of the unsprayed plant was 30% and it was decreased to 14.40% after one spray though disease reduction was not significantly different. On the other hand, untreated plants experienced higher fruit infections with time (Fig. Minimum (0.24-0.4%) surface area diseased was observed in PK+ZnSO4 and NPK+ZnSO4+Gypsum treatments. In the combination of cowdung+SOC disease severity was less than SOC. All of the above studies had done in in vitro. The experiments were conducted at Bangladesh Agricultural University Campus, at Mymensingh, Bangladesh during 1992-93 in two guava seasons- main season (April-August) and the minor (off) season (October-February). Rawal (1993) used multilinear regression for assessment of relation between guava fruit weight loss and incidence of fruit rots caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and other fungi. It has been reported in all guava-growing areas around the world where high rainfall and humidity are present. Raut (1990) postulated that high dose of nitrogen favored the development of alternaria leaf blight of cotton which agrees with our findings. Anthracnose is a fungal disease that affects plants by forming dead areas on leaves and fruit. Integration of various management practices has brought success in some crops (Raut, 1990; Singh et al., 1990; Adisa, 1985). The experiment was conducted during September-August of 1995-96 at the farm of the Department of Plant Pathology, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh. Regression coefficients in both cases were highly significant. Some other soil amendments resulted in minimum disease. One hundred percent of plants and 90–100% of fruits were severely diseased. The control of anthracnose (Colletotrichum simmondsii) during the post-harvest stage in guava fruits (Psidium guajava L.) was performed by the application of phosphites [phosphite-K (40% P2O5 and 30% K2O) and phosphite-Ca (10.7% P2O5, 3.89% Ca, and 0.5% B)] including the Carbendazim as reference, calcium chloride (CaCl2), acetyl salicylic Spraying was started from early fruit stage i.e., before appearance of infection. Guava (Psidium guajava Linn.) A total of 10 diseases have been reported on guava in Bahgladesh (Meah and Khan,1987). an important fruit of subtropical countries is affected by about 177 pathogens of which, 167 are fungal, 3 bacterial, 3 algal, 3 nematodes and one epiphyte. One of the major changes occurs in the cell wall, affecting appearance, making this fruit more susceptible to the attack of this pathogen, significantly affecting marketing and storage. Eighty percent of the guava plants were found infected with anthracnose disease and over 40% of the fruit produced on those trees were severely infected. Seeds may also be treated prior to planting. The whole surface of the plant including both surface of the leaves, buds, twigs, fruits and branches were well sprayed with the suspension of fungicides and minor elements. Using water containing moderate to high amounts of sulfur may cause CS 2005 to neutralize. Similarly spray of fungicides and minor elements especially tilt, rovral and zinc had profound effects on anthracnose infestations. It is a matter to be looked into that how the management practices work under heavy disease intensity and favorable weather. 2). But their combination produced more disease in comparison with their single effect. MISCELLANEOUS: GUAVA - ANTHRACNOSE, RED ALGAE (NOT PERMITTED IN CA) General Information GENERAL INFORMATION CS 2005 IS A COPPER SULFATE PENTAHYDRATE FORMULATION USED TO CONTROL BACTERIA AND FUNGI THAT CAN CAUSE SPOILAGE ON AGRICULTURAL COMMODITIES. Psidium guajava (guava) is well known tropic tree which is abundantly grown for fruit. In sprayed plants, fruits grained weight which showed a continued increase in weight with increase in number of fungicide sprays. Remove and destroy any infected plants in your garden. Urea, gypsum, cowdung+SOC and SOC produced highest (4.8-6.8%) surface area infection among all other treatments with SOC supporting the highest. Cowdung produced no disease singly and perhaps it suppressed the effect of SOC. Statistically the effect of TSP (4.2%) on surface area diseased was similar to that of MOC-ghani (3.2%) and urea (4.8%) but better than urea and inferior to MOC (ghani). Lukade and Rane (Lukade and Rane, 1994) reported that application of N in combination with phosphorus was found effective in reducing the root rot of safflower and when these inorganic amendments applied singly, they were ineffective against root rot disease. Disinfect by dipping the knife in one part bleach to four parts of water. However observation made by Raut (1990) indicate that high doses of potassium induce resistance mechanism in the plant against alternaria leaf blight of cotton. Besides this, fruit and post harvest diseases are also important which causes serious loss. Estimation of yield loss: Under unsprayed condition in all the varieties, reduced fruit weight was obtained.
