Abstract

Head rot development caused by Rhizopus oryzae and Sclerotinia sclerotiorum was studied at different temperature regimes viz., 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°C maintained in BOD incubators. For head rot development byRhizopus oryzae and Sclerotinia sclerotiorum the temperature regimes of 30°C and 20°C respectively were found to be most congenial.
