Last update: 19/10/2006
Summary Under irrigated agro-eco region in paddy-wheat production system some of the high yielding varieties are becoming susceptible to blast. It has been observed that high infestation of blast reduces paddy yield up to 60 per cent. Majority of farmers are not applying any fungicide or other control measures to control this disease. Application of recommended pesticides at proper stages for efficient control of blast in paddy improves the productivity and returns from this crop.
