Abstract

The damping-off incidence caused by Pythium aphanidermatum in chilli was 20.0 and 58.0%
post-emergence at 7 and 20 days after sowing, respectively in clay soil. Among 4 different soils,
clay soil favoured the disease most and recorded the maximum fungal population of
12.46x103 cfu/g of soil at 20 days after sowing. The incidence of disease was comparatively
low in sandy soil.
