Banded blight of sugarcane caused by Thanatephorus cucumeris in Uttar Pradesh


, : Banded blight of sugarcane caused by Thanatephorus cucumeris in Uttar Pradesh. Agricultural Science Digest 12(2): 90-92

In Uttar Pradesh occurrence of destructive banded blight disease caused by an aerial strain of Thanatephorus cucumeris (Fr.) Donk has been reported on sugarcane. The pathogen has a wide range of host and produces abundant sclerotia on the affected parts and perfect state on apparently healthy tissues adjacent to lesions. Fruiting of the pathogen in vitro has successfully been induced. Sclerotia and plant debris are the main source of primary inoculum. Secondary spread occurs through basidiospores which are produced maximum at 26-28 degree C temperature and above 90% relative humidity.
