Abstract: The frequent epiphytotics of anthracnose disease in Kashmir valley witnessed during past few years and extent of the damage in form of quality and quantity of fruits has compelled to develop integrated management of the disease. The disease was managed from nursery to transplanted crop with certain stipulated treatments in nursery viz. Trichoderma harzianum @ 4 g kg-1 seed, Thiram 50 WP @ 2 g kg-1 seed and carbendazim 50 WP @ 2 g kg-1 seed separately. Different biological and chemical treatments were used with each spray of various fungicides. The two efficient nursery treatments comprised of thiram 50 WP @ 2g/kg seed + FYM @10 q/ha and thiram 50 WP @ 2g/kg seed + vermicompost @7 q/ha were found most effective impeding the disease severity by 26.16 and 27.63 %, respectively and in the transplanted field spray of propiconazole 25 EC @ 0.1% was found to be at par (6.10 and 8.40 %) with mancozeb 50 WP @ 0.3% securing least dieback and fruit rot intensity of 6.72 and 9.55%, respectively. It can therefore be concluded that systemic fungicides proved better in controlling the disease than protectants, hence are recommended for managing the disease in the field.
