Abstract:

Integrated Disease Management of six different treatment combinations (T0 = Control, T1 = Application of Neem oil extract solution (1: 10 dilution) started from 10 days after sowing (DAS) at 10 days interval, T2 = Application of Dithane M-45 @ 0.2% started from 10 DAS and at 10 days interval, T3 = Application of Sumithion @ 0 .3% started from 10 DAS at 10 days interval, T4 = Integration of Dithane M-45 + Sumithion , T5 = Integration of Dithane M-45 + Sumithion + Neem oil extract) were performed with groundnut varieties (V1: Dhaka-1, V2: Binachinabadam-2 and V3: Binachinabadam-3) to measure the effectiveness of the disease control treatments as well as to get the maximum economic return. Among the treatments, T5 gave the best result along with all three varieties. Treatment T5 gave highest yield of 3061.31 kg ha-1 in Binachinabadam-3. The second best performance was recorded at T4 treatment which received Dithane M-45 + Sumithion and yielded 3001.50 kg ha-1 in Binachinabadam-3. Other yield contributing parameters were also found significantly higher in Binachinabadam-3. Benefit cost ratio (BCR) was highest 2.00 at the combinations of T5V3 and T5V2 followed by T3V3 and T3V2.
