A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of fungicides against Field pea powdery mildew (Erysiphe polygoni DC.) in the experimental field of Department of Plant Protection, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences,Allahabad in Rabi Season of 2012-2013. Effect of fungicidal treatments on pod formation at 10 and 20 days after the spray was observed. Significantly maximum number of pods was recorded in propiconazole (13.67 and 14.47 at 10 and 20 days after spray respectively respectively) followed by carbendazim (13.33 and 14.27 at 10 and 20 days after spray respectively respectively) as compared to control which recordered minimum number of pods per plant (8.50 and 9.60 at 10 and 20 days after spray respectively). Maximum test weight of 1000 grain (g/plot) was recorded in propiconazole (183.55 g) followed by carbendazim (182.66 g) as compare to control recorded minimum weight (149.13g). Maximum grain yield q/ha was recorded in propiconazole (19.60 q/ha) followed by carbendazim (19.40 q/ha) as compared to control (13.75 q/ha).
Key words: Field pea, Fungicides, Pod and Grain yield.
