Abstract:
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merill) is one of the world’s most important oilseed cum legume crop. Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merill) is one of the world’s most important oilseed cum legume crop. It has highest protein content among leguminous crops belonging to the family Leguminaceae. Among several diseases, Anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum truncatum (Schw) Andrus and Moore is one of the most destructive disease of soybean crop, causing great losses and the disease has attained serious proportion in soybean growing areas of Khandesh. Therefore, present investigations were carried out on the aspects viz. isolation of the pathogen, pathogenicity, identification of the pathogens, in vitro evaluation of the fungicides, botanicals and bioagents against the pathogen and in vivo (pot culture) evaluation of the fungicides. The present research work was conducted at Plant Pathology Section, College of Agriculture, Dhule during 2012-2013. Result reveal that treatments carbendazim @ 0.1% recorded maximum disease control (76.78%) and was found significantly superior over rest of the fungicidal treatments. The next best treatments were Tebuconazole @ 0.1% (63.35%), followed by the Propiconazole @0.1% (60.05%) and Hexaconazole @ 0.1% (49.71%) of disease control. While, Difenconazole @ 0.1% showed minimum (40.61%) disease control.
