Effect of methyl bromide and dazomet on germination of Tilletia indica teliospores in field soil uri icon

abstract

  • Methyl bromide and dazomet fumigants were applied to soil at the rate of 454 kg/ha a.i. to determine their effects on viability of Tilletia indica teliospores. At 5 and 10 cm depth, the teliospore germination was 0 and 0-02%, and 2.41 and 0.60%, in plots treated with methyl bromide and dazomet, respectively. In the untreated control plot, germination was 9.91 and 7.16%.
