Fusarium wilt

Caused by: Fusarium oxysporum
Problem Category: Fungal Disease
Symptoms: Weak and wilting leaf stems, leaves and flowers; lower leaves drying out and dying; leaves turning brown or pale yellow; splitting the stem reveals discoloration of the inner tissue; leaves turn dull yellow in color and collapse
Comments: Disease emergence favors warm, moist soils; disease can be spread by water splash, movement of infected soil and plants and by infected seed
Management: The primary method of controlling the disease is to use resistant varieties; damage can be reduced by application of appropriate fungicides; crop debris should be removed or plowed deeply into the soil after harvest; if disease is present in the soil then a rotation to a non-host for a period of three years can reduce the levels of inoculum in the soil
Control: spray 2 times 10% Cowdung+Asafoetida solution in 10 days interval to control wilt symptoms
