Anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporiodes or Colletotrichum circinans)


Symptoms : The symptoms appear initially on the leaves as water soaked pale yellow spots, which spreads lengthwise covering entire leaf blade. The affected leaves shrivel and droop down.

Control: Since the pathogen survives on crop debris, sanitation and destruction of infected crop debris helps in reducing the disease. Mancozeb (0.25%), Carbendazim (0.1%) or Thiophanate Methyl (0.1%) as foliar spray is effective against the disease.
