Management of soft pubescent Asita disease in millet crop

लेखक - Lohit Baisla | 6/8/2020

Bajra, one of the main fodder crops, is prone to various diseases. The outbreak of these diseases reduces the yield of millet and grains. Bajra crop is heavily damaged by mild pubescent Asita disease. This disease is also known as green ear disease or downy mildew. See the symptoms and ways to avoid this disease from here.

symptom of disease

  • Soft pubescent Asita is a fungal disease.

  • The leaves of plants affected by this disease turn yellow.

  • A white powdery coating appears on the lower surface of the leaves.

  • As the disease progresses, the plants do not form earrings.

  • Even if earrings are formed, small leaves start coming out instead of grains.

  • If the leaves affected by this disease fall in the soil of the field, there is a risk of getting this disease in the next year's crop also.

preventive measures

  • To avoid this disease, use treated seeds.

  • Before sowing, treat the seed with 8 grams of Ridomil MZ 72 WP per kg of seed.

  • Remove disease-affected plants from the field and destroy them.

  • Spraying with 2 grams Ridomil MZ or Propinab 70 percent WP per liter of water gives relief from this disease.

  • Spray 0.35% copper oxychloride in standing crop. If required, re-spraying can be done at an interval of 10-15 days.
