Abstract

All the treatments significantly reduced powdery mildew intensity and increased the test
weight and seed yield of mungbean over unsprayed control. Karathane 48 EC (@ 0.1%) was
most effective, recording least mean powdery mildew intensity (15.14%) and highest grain yield
(1425 kg/ha) and test weight (58.00 g). The second and third best effective fungicides were
Contaf (@ 0.1%) and Calixin (@ 0.1%), which recorded mean disease intensity of 18.43 and
18.99 per cent, respectively and were at par. Botanical NSKE and plain water also recorded
comparatively minimum disease intensity of 33.47 and 32.51 per cent, respectively over unsprayed
control (54.65%). Cost benefit ratio showed that all the treatments were economical although
Sulfex was most economical with C : B ratio of 1:21.11 followed by botanical NSKE (1:12.76),
Contaf (1:7.83), plain water (1:7.61) and Calixin (1:7.28).
