Abstract

Four sprays of zineb at 15 d intervals starting from the end of Jul. to early Aug. reduced the incidence of Phytophthora colocasiae on Colocasia esculenta and increased the yield. Other measures including minimising the source of inoculum, maintenance of sanitary field conditions, crop rotation and the use of disease-free plant material, are also recommended.
