The experiment was conducted at Horticulture Research Centre (HRC), Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Joydebpur, Gazipur during Rabi 2003- 2006 following RCB design with 4 replications. Sixty two germplasm of sweet gourd and eight fungicides were evaluated against powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe cichocearum under field condition. Four lines of sweet gourd namely BD 4388, BD 204, BD 205, BD 210 were found resistant to powdery mildew. Mycosulf, Thiovit and Insuf were found best in controlling severity of disease by >80% not depending on locations. Additional yield 14.58t/ha was found from Thiovit treated plot which was 65.35% higher compared to control. Net income increased almost two times and the farmers having more options for controlling powdery mildew as more than one fungicide were found effective. Download
