For the management of Alternaria leaf blight disease of tomato, farmers in these area uses fungicide Dithane-M-45, Bavistin, Ridomil, Blitox and Captaf. However, Alternaria leaf blight pathogen had developed resistance to the fungicides Dithane-M-45, Bavistin and Captaf; but it was still susceptible to Blitox and Ridomil.
