Pradip Kumar Bairwa
Cultivation of resistant varieties seems to be the most economical and sustainable control measure of early blight disease of tomato. Ten tomato varieties were evaluated against early blight disease caused by Alternaria solani under natural epiphytotic conditions. Among them two cultivars Pusa Ruby and Arka Rakshak were showed 1-10% disease intensity and considered as resistant. Three cultivars Pusa Rohini, Arka Abhed and Arka Samrat, were showed 11-25% disease intensity and considered as moderately resistant. One cultivar Arka Apeksha, were showed 26-50% disease intensity and considered as moderately susceptible, whereas Arka Vikas and VL- Tamatar 4 were showed highly susceptible reaction.
