Research on fungal diseases of groundnut at ICRISAT uri icon

abstract

  • Many fungal diseases of groundnut are known (Jackson and Bell 1969; Garren and Jackson 1973) and many fungi are reported to be closely associated with groundnut fruits and seeds. Some of the diseases are of restricted distribution but most are of common occurrence throughout the Semi-Arid Tropics (SAT). At ICRISAT the main concern is with those widespread diseases that cause economically important losses in yield, and in this paper investigations carried out during the past 4 years on important foliar and soilborne diseasesare briefly reviewed
