Chilli leaf curl virus (ChiLCV) disease caused by Begomovirus (family Geminiviridae) has emerged as a serious threat to the successful cultivation chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) production in India and worldwide, which is drastically decreases yield. An integrated approach was developed for the management of ChiLCV disease of chilli using strategies such as growing border crop, use of reflective mulches, soil application of organic amendment and the spray of insecticides for management of the vector. The results of the experiments from the three years pooled data, pesticides with label claims, yield and cost-benefit ratio indicated that treatment comprising application of neem cake @ 1.0 kg/m2 in the seedbed, covering of nursery with 40 mesh white nylon net, spraying of Cyantraniliprole 10.26 OD @ 1.2 ml/l three days before transplanting, seedling dip of Imidacloprid 17.8 SL @ 0.5 ml/l and planting of two rows of maize border crop in the main field along with sliver agrimulch sheet and the spray of Cyantraniliprole 10.26 OD @ 1.2 ml/l at seven days interval till fruit formation was found significantly superior over control in terms of per cent leaf curl incidence (4.02 %) and green fruit yield (136.40 q/ha) with better cost-benefit ratio (1:2.10). This integrated approach is safe and ecologically sound and seems to be a healthy tactic for disease management.
