Abstract: Five treatments viz. neem leaves extract 3%, eucalyptus leaves extract 3%, neem oil 3%, Trichoderma harzianum 3% and Pseudomonas fluoroscens 0.2% with treated control hexaconazole 0.1% and control (distilled water) were used as foliar spray on plants. Among all the treatments, neem leaf extract was found to be effective to controlling rust disease of pea. Minimum per cent disease incidence (30.80) was recorded from this plot. Two foliar sprays of neem leaf extract at interval of 10 days may be the option for the management of rust disease in severe condition. Neem leaf extract can be alternative method for farmers to have eco-friendly management of Rust disease whereas chemicals have negative impact on human and plant health.
