Management of Tikka or Cercospora Leaf-spot in Groundnut
Necrotic circular spot surrounded by a light-yellow ring on the upper side of the leaves.
To control the disease, care should be taken from the beginning right from seeds’ selection. Select healthy and unblemished kernels. Before sowing, seed treatment should be done with Thiram (75%)@5 gm or Indofil M-45 (75%)@3 gm/kg of kernels. Spray the crop with Wettable Sulphur 50 WP@ 500-750 gm/200-300 litres of water per acre. Give 3 or 4 sprays at fortnight intervals, starting from the first week of August. Alternatively, spray the irrigated crop with Carbendazim 50 WP@500gm/200 litres of water per acre. Give three sprays at fortnight intervals, starting when the crop is 40 days old.
