Anthracnose/pod blight (Colletotrichum truncatum Schw) is one of the major diseases of
soybean (Glycine max L.) during Kharif season. Present study conducted in the Marathwada
region of the State of Maharashtra during Kharif, 2006 aimed to find out the efficacy of fungicides,
bioagents and botanicals in the management of anthracnose / pod blight of soybean. Results
indicated that all five fungicides, two botanicals and two bioagents evaluated significantly reduced
the disease intensity and thereby enhanced the seed yield over unsprayed control. However,
fungicide Carendazim (@ 0.1%) was found most effective and economical in controlling the
disease, which recorded least mean foliage anthracnose (19.43%), mean defoliation (11.85%),
mean pod blight (9.64%) with highest seed yield (2605 kg/ha) and most economical C:B ratio
(1:13.55). This was followed by the fungicides Hexaconazole and Propiconazole. Both botanicals
and bioagents tested were also found effective against the disease.
