Abstract

Three neem extracts (Neem seed kernal extract, Neem Oil, Neem cake extract), leaf extracts
of Prosophis (Prosophis juliIJora), Ipomea (Ipomea cornea) and fungicides Mancozeb and
Carbendazim were effective against Erysiphe polygoni. DC, the pathogen causing powdery
mildew of blackgram. Among the plant ~tracts tested neem seed kernel extract (5 per cent) was
found to be superior in containing the powdery mildew disease and increasing the grain yield of
blackgram under pot culture experiment
