ABSTRACT

A research work was conducted on the standing citrus plant raised at
citrus orchard in Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, during
the period from May to September 2005 to investigate the effect of
bioagent, plant extracts and fungicides in controlling the scab and die
back of citrus. One bioagent (Trichoderma harzianumT22), three plant
extracts viz. Bishkatali (Polygonum hydropiper), Garlic (Allium sativum)
and Neem (Azadirachta indica) and five fungicides viz. Dithane M-45
(0.3%), Ridomil MZ-72 (0.2%), Bavistin 50 WP (0.1%), Champion 77
WP (0.25%) and Bordeaux mixture (1%) were applied for controlling
scab and die back of citrus. The highest reduction of the scab severity
(PDI) was performed by Champion 77 WP (72.72% leaf scab and 83.98%
fruit scab) followed by, Bishkatali (67.54% and 79.99%), Bordeaux
mixture (66.26%, and 72.01%) and Trichoderma harzianumT22 (62.36%
and 63.34%). The highest reduction of die-back severity (PDI) was
resulted by Dithane M-45 (73.46%) fallowed by Neem extract (67.34%),
Bordeaux mixture (59.19%) and Trichoderma harzianum T22
(57.67%).Thus, the Champion 77 WP (0.25%) could be used for
controlling scab of citrus while Dithane M-45 (0.3%) for die-back and
Bordeaux mixture for both scab and die-back of citrus.
