Efficacy of fungicides for the control of phytophthora leaf blight of taro (Colocasia esculenta var. esculenta)



Efficacy of fungicides for the control of phytophthora leaf blight of taro (Colocasia esculenta var. esculenta)



Progressive Horticulture 35(2): 239-240



The efficacy of metalaxyl, mancozeb, copper oxychloride, thiophanate-methyl and captafol in controlling leaf blight of taro (C. esculenta var. esculenta) caused by Phytophthora colocasiae was determined in a field experiment conducted in Uttar Pradesh, India during the kharif season of 1997-98. The mean disease severity value was lowest (8.78%) with the application of metalaxyl.
