Assessment and Identification of Fungal Diseases of Crops in Shivalic Hills

Author : Manu Vineet Sharma 1 Hem Chander 2

Date of Publication :20th November 2020

Abstract: Crop diseases are major threat to farmers. Diseases make the crop plant unhealthy and cause economic losses. Here emerging fungal crop diseases of Shivalic Hills are assessed and identified. Disease incidence and severity methods are used for assessment. In case of identification of fungal pathogens, morphological symptoms of diseased crop plants are quite helpful but not completely effective. So further culture based and microscopic characters of pathogens are observed and considered. Assessment and identification of crop diseases are quite important so that further effective control strategies could develop and crop yield could be enhanced.
