Fungicide against Tilletia indica

In India, experiments have been carried out to test propiconazole against Tilletia indica (EPPO A1 organism) under natural and artificial inoculation conditions in the Punjab area.
Propiconazole applied as Tilt 250 EC at a rate of 500 ml/ha in a single spray resulted in a 71-96% disease reduction. Accordingly, propiconazole has been recommended for general use in seed production.
