Management of corm rot of saffron (Crocus sativus L.) in Kashmir, India
The present study on the management of corm rot of saffron was carried out in the Division of Plant Pathology, SKUAST-K, Shalimar, Srinagar during 2005-2010. The present study revealed that the T. viride-2 and T. viride-1 isolates reduced the corm rot severity to minimum (15.6 and 11.1% and to 23.7 and 15.9%, respectively) when applied as corm treatment or into soil through FYM compared to control (60.5 and 64.4%, respectively). Among fungicides, corms treated with carbendazim 50 WP or myclobutanil 10 WP proved the most effective in reducing corm rot severity to 7.4 and 5.2% and to 3.0 and 5.9%, when corms were dipped overnight in fungicidal suspension or given wet slurry treatment, respectively.
