Author(s): Nandini R., Shripad Kulkarni*
Field experiments conducted during 2011-12 involving Hot water treatment + Seed treatment with Pseudomonas fluorescens (0.5%) + Foliar spray of Pseudomonas fluorescens at 25 days and Streptocycline + Copper oxychloride (0.05 + 0.3%) spray at 45 days, reduced the severity of cowpea bacterial blight significantly and improved both the germination per cent and yield. It is imperative from the study that usage of all management strategies viz., chemicals, biological and cultural together will give better management of the disease than following either of the methods separately.
