Recent Advances in Research and Management of Botrytis Gray Mold of Chickpea uri icon


  • The Fourth Working Group Meeting on Botrytis Gray Mold of Chickpea reviewed research progressduring the last two years in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal . This publication contains summaries ofthe findings and recommendat ions made for future research priorities. Field experiments conductedin Bangladesh, Nepal, and India suggested that an integrated disease management program if practisedalong with other improved agronomical practices, can substantially reduce disease severity inchickpea fields and increase chickpea production in disease-prone areas. High priority was given toparticipatory on-farm validation of the available components of BGM management such as moderatelevels of host plant resistance, agronomic options (spaced planting and judicious use of fungicide),and their integration
